For Immediate Release 

Lancaster, Pa. – Barley Snyder is pleased to announce that partner John Reed has been named the chair of the board of the Lancaster City Revitalization and Improvement Zone Authority.

The authority oversees the implementation of the city-created Lancaster CRIZ Program, which provides financial assistance to development projects that occur within the 130-acre CRIZ district from eligible state and local tax revenues generated by the project. The district includes the downtown and other selected areas throughout the city. The financial assistance comes from eligible state and local tax revenues generated by the project, according to the authority’s website.

The program focuses on development of vacant or underutilized properties.

“The CRIZ is an important development tool for the business community of Lancaster and for the city’s future,” Reed said. “Since its inception in 2013, the authority has worked with business owners to identify qualifying projects and to bring their business vision to reality. I’m happy to lead the authority as the next generation of Lancaster business owners continue to benefit from the considerable resources of CRIZ.”

Reed is a partner in the Barley Snyder Business Practice Group working with closely held and family-owned businesses. He has served on the boards of other community improvement groups, such as the Lancaster City Alliance and the Lancaster Safety Coalition.
