Current Hourglass Initiatives

Growth and Prosperity

Protecting the Environment -

Our natural environments are among the County’s most important assets.  We work with government, businesses, and organizations to find innovative solutions to minimize the impact of growth on the environment, including water quality, stormwater management, and Chesapeake Bay cleanup.

Land Use and Planning -

To meet the challenges of growth we must anticipate and prepare for what is coming.  We support Lancaster County’s Comprehensive Plan - which includes preserving farmland, adherence to urban growth boundaries, high -density housing, increased investment in urban centers, upper-floor redevelopment and other smart growth initiatives.
