The intent of the Lancaster Post was to provide an alternative look at the news and the issues of the day, particularly those which were slanted - or even ignored - by the mainstream media. Often irreverent, its articles provided a fresh insight into local life and times.
"A View From Downtown" was a regular column which appeared in the Lancaster Post, written by a lifelong Lancaster City resident. These articles covered information and perspective about issues which affect life in downtown Lancaster, including the hotel and convention center project.
Because many of these articles included so much important information, with the permission of the author we are re-posting the Lancaster Post series of articles about the hotel and convention center project here.
