The rural appeal of York County and the Historic Triangle is quickly being overwhelmed by development. The majority of that development in recent years has been due to rezoning, to allow greater density. In 2020 a citizen group said "enough is enough," and resisted a rezoning in Upper York. County officials and developers took notice, and the rezoning application was denied.
We saw the power of citizen action, and the Conserve York County Foundation was born. Knowing that growth is inevitable, our mission is to advocate for measured, smart growth, and to deter special interests' domination of development decisions by our local governments. We want to identify key areas for conservation, and to advocate for improved quality in the infrastructure of future development.
Together we can protect the future of our region.
