About Us

The natural appeal of York County and the Historic Triangle is quickly disappearing.
Uncontrolled development is irreversibly destroying the last vestiges of our region’s character.

Keep the Rural in “Rural Residential”


We are dismayed and fearful that this unstoppable trend will continue. 

The developers "win", while our Citizen/Voters "lose". It's the great zero-sum game brought about by detached & unconcerned civic leaders.

The results:

  • Permanent loss of regional beauty & wildlife habitat.
  • Extreme increases in traffic & crime.
  • More strain on emergency services.
  • Higher taxes.
  • School overcrowding.
