York College Supports Downtown York Revitalization

This is exactly how revitalization should work.  A community institution, in this case York College, is supporting the City of York’s efforts to revitalize their business district.

The old Fraternal Order of Eagles building in center city York is being rehabilitated.  York College just signed a lease to be the anchor tenant of this new adaptive reuse project.  The building is being transformed into an arts center!

The York County Industrial Development Authority purchased the building for $290,000 and is investing $2.5 MILLION into the project, which is a mix of private funds, the York County Development Authority’s funds and a grant from the Commonwealth Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program.

One floor of the building will be transformed into gallery and studio space for senior painting students at York College.  We think this is awesome and give all involved parties two Roy’s Rants thumbs up on a job well done AND hold this up as an example of cooperation between multiple entities for the common good of York City!
