Community Development 101: Meet Lancaster’s New Mayor

Share your priorities for Lancaster and your neighborhood with Mayor Don McDaniel.

What are your priorities for your neighborhood? Have questions or ideas for Lancaster, Ohio’s new mayor? Mayor Don McDaniel will be our guest for our next Community Development 101 at the Fairfield County District Library Tuesday, April 2nd at 11:00 am – 12:00 pm and on Thursday, April 4th at 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. The library is located at 219 N. Broad Street. Registering on the Library’s website helps us know how many people to expect, but isn’t required.

The City’s Community Development Department hosts these informative sessions to connect with residents, address your questions, and bring you information about your City government. We’ve had Mayor Scheffler, Paul Martin (Service Safety Director), Erica Todd (Code Enforcement), Darren Drum and Michael Wickham (Water).

Get these questions and more answered:

1) Lancaster is divided into sections. What are the sections called?
2) How many sections are there?
3) Which section do you live in?
4) How do you contact your City Council Member?
5) What are the City Council Members who represent all citizens called?
6) What can you do when there is a pothole?
7) What about a streetlight that it out?
8) What can be done about cars speeding down your street?
9) What do you do when you want to close off your street for a block party?
10) Who is at the top of the City of Lancaster’s Organizational Chart?

Attend one of the Community Development Department 101 sessions where you’ll learn the answers.
