The Lancaster Mayor’s office has a Special Events division. Their mission is to “host, create and produce special events for the City of Lancaster, promote and market them, and act as a resource to others planning special events”. MOOSE exists to create excitement and enthusiasm about Lancaster City.
Lancaster hosts seven yearly events for its citizens and visitors, which are a joint effort between MOOSE and the James Street Improvement District. Lancaster successfully turned around their downtown by identifying an Improvement District and then expanding it. Lansdale’s goal was to learn from Lancaster’s successes and adapt them to fit Lansdale.
(HINT) Since these people take their show on the road, Pottstown should invite them here and see what they have to say. Lancaster’s vibrant downtown is the envy of most cities and towns in this state!
