GO YORK 2045 LAUNCHES
York County Prepares for the Future of Transportation
The York County Planning Commission and York Area Metropolitan Planning Organization announce the launch of Go York 2045, a comprehensive planning effort for all forms of transportation in York County, and its accompanying website, GoYork2045.com. Go York 2045 will bring together the public and organizations from around York County to develop strategies and investments to better move people and goods during the next 27 years.
 
Over the next few decades, communities across the country will confront major changes in population and technology, and York County is no different. Here are three brief examples of the big questions York County faces.
 
In 2016, for the first time since York County's Center for Traffic Safety began collecting data, crashes involving senior drivers (65+) became the number one traffic safety concern in York County. The Center for Rural Pennsylvania expects the number of people over 65 years of age in the state to nearly double in the next 30 years. Together, these factors create an important challenge for York County. How can senior citizens continue to enjoy our communities while traveling safely?
 
As anyone who has driven on Interstate 83 knows, York County is a hub of logistics. Investors have built multiple million-square-foot warehouses along the I-83 corridor in recent years. That development brings both jobs and trucks - more than 5,000 trucks per day on the busiest sections of I-83. Economists predict online shopping to continue to grow, which will spur more demand for these types of large facilities. How will York County manage the expected increase in freight shipping without sacrificing the quality of life residents enjoy today?
 
Major auto manufacturers, including GM, Ford, Honda, and Toyota, have announced plans for self-driving cars in the early 2020s. Ridesharing or ride-hailing companies like Lyft and Uber already do business in York County. As technology evolves and combines, it presents the ability to expand people's options to move throughout and beyond our community. How can York County best harness this potential for our residents?
 
During the next 18 months, Go York 2045 will provide an opportunity for organizations and the public to engage with these and other changes in our community as they relate to transportation. At its launch today, GoYork2045.com shows the framework of the plan and the notes from the first meeting of the steering committee. YAMPO has also begun work on an interactive, web-based inventory of transportation facilities that is available by clicking on the Current Conditions and Trends title. As work progresses, YAMPO will update the Go York 2045 website to inform and consult with the public about important issues and decisions. Anyone interested in being involved should sign up for email updates at GoYork2045.com.

PCCA: Residential Plumbing Academy
This four-day program is a comprehensive review of Chapters 25-33 of the International Residential Code.  It includes examples, exercises and case studies designed to illustrate daily practices performed by a Residential Plumbing Inspector or Plans Examiner.  Material includes a review of how the UCC amends certain provision of the IRC, especially with regard to residential alterations and exclusions.
Hydraulics, pneumatics and how water, air and gases interact to make a plumbing system work properly are explored and common plumbing materials such as piping and fittings are introduced.  Building permit issuance is discussed with an emphasis placed on the most important issues to be addressed and resolve during the review process. 
Interactive learning will be implemented through conducting virtual inspections. A checklist of critical issues associated with plumbing installations will also be developed.  Emphasis will be placed on addressing plumbing and sprinkler system installation issues that should be resolved at the permit application stage of the project.
 
Topics include:
  • General plumbing requirements
  • Protection, testing, trenching and workmanship
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Water supply systems
  • Backflow prevention
  • Water and waste drainage systems
  • Traps and vents
  • Sumps and sub-soil Drains
  • IRC provisions relating to on-lot septic systems and water/sewer laterals
  • Residential automatic fire sprinkler systems

York County Walks
Taking steps toward better health!
Time to get up and go outside for a walk!  Check out the Coalition's new website for inspiration:
 
We have posted four articles with helpful information to keep you safe and warm (posted under "News").  Plus, the website provides information on local resources - walking groups and locations. 
 
Does that describe you? 
It's fun to say.  Better yet, it's fun to do. 
Walking can be both addictive and contagious.  Invite a friend or family member to join you.  Let's encourage each other to walk more for better mental and physical health.
 
Are you one of York County's many "Walkers"? 
If so, send us a short statement and photo and we'll post it on our website. Let's grow the movement!
