Lancaster Housing 118


The Housing & Real Estate Development division provides a range of services, housing programs and projects designed to assist in the maintenance and improvement of the quality of life in Lancaster’s neighborhoods.

The goal is to make every neighborhood a desirable place to live, work and play by encouraging development and revitalization through strategic investment of public resources intended to make every neighborhood “livable”.

Housing services are delivered through the Housing Division and the Mobilehome Park Inspection Program to address concerns within the more established areas of the City of Lancaster by reversing the pattern of deterioration and recapturing the sense of place that once existed; increase the livability and vitality of its neighborhoods; and rekindling a sense of pride among residents unique to Lancaster.

In order to accomplish these goals, it will be necessary to address the problems inherent to the City through physical improvements, financial incentives, and social assistance.

These operations work together to prevent further blight by encouraging and fostering housing and economic revitalization by protecting and promoting the sound development and revitalization of the community; reinvesting in older neighborhoods and commercial districts; and encouraging new development at the edges of the City to be more compact and pedestrian-oriented.

Housing services are delivered through: make neighborhoods better.

These operations work together and collaborate with other City departments, outside agencies, organizations and citizens to implement neighborhood plans, help solve neighborhood problems, build capacity in neighborhood organizations, enforce minimum housing and property standards, and maintain and expand the supply of affordable housing.
