YorIT, a York County Community Foundation has a Social Venture Fund with $20,000 and is looking for a person or persons with “new, creative, out-of-the-box ideas that can attract retailers and restaurants to the area as well as get more people to come downtown” to give it to.
I seriously think I should move to York! I am continually amazed at the level of cooperation between the city, county and private sector. How refreshing to see that suburbanites get that York City is the heart of York County and are trying to do all in their power to revitalize it!
Around here, it’s the opposite. Most suburbanites do not seem to care if places like Philadelphia, Norristown and Pottstown fail. Many avoid coming into these places at all costs. Very sad.
