In 2010 the Lancaster Downtowners became a member of the Village to Village Network and implemented the Just One Call volunteer service program. In November of that year the organization received its 501(c)3 designation.
The Downtowners continued to explore partnerships and additional services that could be beneficial to members, engaging local organizations and also inviting representatives from other Villages in the region to present program ideas.
In February 2017 the Lancaster Downtowners began the implementation of a five year strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of the organization. In the fall of that year the Lancaster Downtowners established a partnership with Landis Communities to receive administrative support for a part-time staff position. The spring of 2018 the Lancaster Downtowners opened an office space at Steeple View Lofts and hired a part-time executive director.
