Stacey MacNeal is a member of the Barley Snyder Real Estate Practice Group and chair’s the firm’s Land Use team.  She has over 25 years of experience practicing law. She regularly represents property owners and developers in all stages of real estate acquisition, financing, operations, development, and divestment.

A primary section of her practice is land use and development, as she often represents residential developers, commercial developers, business owners and homeowners in front of municipal boards in south central Pennsylvania. Her work stretches through the regions, assisting her clients in front of municipal boards in York, Lancaster, Dauphin, Adams and Cumberland counties, in addition to work beyond those borders as well.

Stacey has experience shepherding complex development through all phases, including zoning, land development, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection approvals, and PennDOT processes. She prides herself on working to find creative solutions to ensure that development proceeds in a timely manner. She also has experience in unique real estate matters such as quiet title actions and eminent domain proceedings.

Giving back to the community is extremely important to Stacey. She currently serves on the board of directors of the York Symphony Orchestra, its governance committee as well as chairs its strategic planning, marketing and audience development task force. She also currently serves on the executive leadership committee for York’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and the fund development committee for the DreamWrights Center for Community Arts. In 2023, Stacey was named to Central Penn Business Journal’s “Women of Influence Circle of Excellence” list. This award is given to women who have demonstrated sustained achievement, longstanding and notable success in the community, and are leading the way for other women.
