Urban land-use expert discusses how to revitalize downtown York


Chris Leinberger — a land use strategist, teacher, developer, researcher and author — spoke to reporters before this evening's annual meeting of the York County Community Foundation.

Leinberger, who is an expert in urban revitalization, discussed the benefits and pitfalls that cities like York will see as they continue to bring back their downtowns.

He said the city has a lot going for it as an urban/walkable community. It has the necessary infrastructure, businesses and a college, which have been key to successes in other cities.

Here are staff reporter Joseph Deinlein's tweets from Leinberger's news conference:
