Welcome to the City of Lancaster, a city with a proud past and a bright future.  From our humble beginnings as a crossroad in Central Kentucky, to the vibrant, bustling community we are today, Lancaster actively plans for the future based on a tremendous foundation of success we have seen in the past.


Lancaster is decidedly pro-business, encouraging an incredible amount of development recently, including new breweries, a distillery, and dining venues, yet we retain that small-town feeling. Our accelerated growth can be attributed to a dedicated city council and staff, coupled with involved community members in association with committed businesses working to prepare Lancaster for the next generation of business partners. So if you're looking to do more than visit, the low property tax rates and cost of living make Lancaster an ideal setting for any project.

The City of Lancaster offers a unique quality of life with its convenient proximity to several Central Kentucky metropolitan areas, while still affording the benefits of a family-oriented community.  Our exceptional city services and public safety departments, excellent school system, and scenic parks and recreation areas assure that Lancaster is a place where one would want to live, work, or play.  

Our progressive economic development focus promotes involvement in developing Lancaster’s utility infrastructure as a priority for future growth. This formula for success has positioned Lancaster to be among the top cities in Central Kentucky to raise a family, have a meaningful career, start or grow a business, and enjoy life!


I, and my fellow City Council members, invite you to come and experience Lancaster.
