Downtown Revitalization Project

By | Events

Our office was informed there is another phase of Downtown Revitalization (DTR) funding that we could apply for. The DTR Committee met and committed to pursuing this next phase. City Administrator, Joe Frei, shared our intentions with York’s City Council at the April 4 meeting. So, what does this mean for downtown property owners? It means there may be more funding available to assist those that were unable to take advantage of the first phase! You can review the guidelines and complete a PRE Application that will be used to accompany the city’s application for the grant funds.  Contact York Chamber’s office at 402-362-5531 for more information.  dtr packet

Trick or Treat Downtown York

By | Events

Be sure to bring the kiddos Thursday October 31 from 3PM to 5PM for Trick or Treat Downtown York! Last year there were over 40 businesses that greeted and handed out treats to York’s younger residents. Adults got to see cute and scary-looking kids all dressed up and the kids walked around with Halloween bags filled to the brim. It was a wonderful and fun time had by all!

If your business wants to participate, contact the chamber at info@yorkchamber.org 402.362.5531
