York City to host green-infrastructure public meeting

Sean Philip Cotter

York City is planning to host a public meeting so citizens can find out about and give feedback on a project geared toward green efforts around town.


The meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 26, at City Hall, 101 S. George St., will focus on "conceptual plans for development of green improvements" around the city and on new transportation initiatives, according to a news release from the city.

The release says the projects will include improvements to Mason Avenue, the continuation of the Heritage Rail Trail and work making more green spaces around the city.

Final funding for York Rail Trail improvements secured

The meeting will start with a presentation about the entire project, and following sessions will allow people to ask questions and comment on the specific initiatives, according to the city.

This is funded through a planning grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the release states.

There's no registration required — anyone from the public who wishes to may just show up, according to the release.
