Lancaster city’s Home Rule Study Commission will hold its November meeting at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, 750 E. King St.

The meeting will take place beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, in the seminar room of the college’s Schuler Learning Resource Center.

The commission is aiming to hold a meeting in each quadrant of the city to raise public awareness and engagement with its work. Its October meeting took place at Bright Side Opportunities in the southwest; Stevens College is in the southeast.

Meetings are livestreamed when feasible. Recordings of all meetings are posted on the city’s YouTube channel.

The commission is studying Lancaster’s government and whether the city would benefit from moving to a home rule charter. For more information, click here.
