Best Wishes and Congratulations! 

After a successful career at the York County Planning Commission, Joe Heffner, our Assistant Director for the past 17 years has announced his plans to retire at the beginning of June. As a result, at their April meeting the York County Planning Commission approved the promotion of Wade Gobrecht to the Assistant Director position. Many of you know Wade through his current position as the Chief of Information Services. I am looking forward to working with Wade in this new capacity. Please join me in extending best wishes to Joe in his retirement and congratulations to Wade in his new position!
