Lancaster

There is a long tradition of collaboration in the Lancaster community. Although the area maintains a small-town feel, the transition from being a rural to an urban area is apparent as new city centers have popped up throughout the region. During this transition, community leaders laid a foundation of strong collaborations and relationships that have continued to develop over time.

Community leadership in Lancaster is specifically described as “passionate, cohesive, collaborative, having strong teamwork, committed and involved.” This type of community leadership, that can pull together different sectors to resolve community issues, is what can turn the community vision of Best Start into a reality.
