YCPC Partnered with County Parks to Create User-Friendly Maps
The York County Planning Commission partnered with the York County Parks Department to do an overhaul on the William Kain County Park map. The new map shows the park boundary, elevation relief, trails with profiles and points of interest. It's the hope that these maps will be user friendly, showcase points of interest and allow people to get a sense of how steep or level a trail is before even setting foot on it. To read more please visit the full article.

2015, 2016, and 2017 Three Year Project Plan

On November 26, 2014, the York County Commissioners approved a 2015, 2016, and 2017 Three Year Project Plan for the CDBG and the ESG programs. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds are received by the County annually through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The YCPC serves as administrator of the County's CDBG and ESG programs, and prepared the Plan on the County's behalf. The Plan projects an annual entitlement grant of $2,000,000 for CDBG and $150,000 for ESG. Based on these entitlement amounts, the Plan includes funding for municipal public works and planning activities, non-profit facilities and public services, home repair for low and moderate income homeowners, and, shelter, prevention, and rapid re-housing activities for homeless families and individuals as well as those at risk of homelessness. A copy of the Plan can be accessed by clicking on the "Reports & Documents" section of the YCPC website, scrolling to "T" and clicking on "Three Year Project Plan", or click here to view the Plan. Questions regarding the plan may be directed to Joiann Galiano at jgaliano@ycpc.org.
