Attend a local township meeting
Recently many of our members and like-minded citizens attended the Jan. 23rd, 2017, meeting at the Manheim Township municipal building and a development was rejected. In another victory for farmland, local citizens spoke passionately at Clay Township's rezoning hearing last May 2nd. When people attend meetings and voice concerns, politicians sit up and listen. This is one huge way you CAN have an impact!
Have conversations with others
Make sure your fellow family and friends know about specific development concerns. Many people in Lancaster County are frustrated with unchecked traffic and growth. Let them know they are not powerless and that a group has formed to combat this problem.
Write letters or social media posts
Letters to the editor go a long way toward swaying local politicians interested in re-election prospects. Let's praise those taking the long view and call out those that don't. Social media is also a great megaphone.
Volunteer with us
Our group sometimes needs folks who can go out and deliver flyers to a threatened community, or someone who can assist with photography, design or other organizational needs. Let us know if you are interested in volunteering.
