The City of Lancaster is proud to work with many different partners in the region and beyond to improve the lives of area residents.  Some of our partners include:




Greater Dubuque Development Corp

City of Dubuque

City of Platteville


Energy Independence Community

Lancaster, in partnership with the City of Platteville, is proud to be an Energy Independence Community, which means the City has set a goal of using 25% renewable energy by the 2025.  As part of the effort to achieve that goal, the City has purchased an electric utility vehicle for our Public Works Department to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, distributed compact fluorescent light bulbs to residents, installed high-efficiency boilers in City Hall, and retrofitted the Public Works garage with energy efficient lighting.  The City will continue to work with Platteville to identify additional opportunities to achieve the 25X25 goal.


Our Sister City

The City of Lancaster’s “Sister City” is Heiden, Germany.  The two cities have a partnership agreement that promotes the exchange of ideas, culture, and visits.
