Thank you for your 2 years on city council & best wishes on your future endeavors.

Thank you for your 2 years on city council & best wishes on your future endeavors.

To my community,

With a heavy heart, I inform you that my last day as a member of Lancaster City Council will be tomorrow, January 11th, 2022. Serving as a council member has been one of the greatest privileges bestowed upon me. It would not have been possible without this community’s support. When I started this journey, my goal was to uphold our values as Lancastrians: authenticity, compassion, and equity. The importance of these values grew in my mind as we worked together to navigate a pandemic that has not only challenged us but has called us to come together to persevere. I witnessed how the solutions to all of our problems can be found in the community if we genuinely listen.

It would have been a pleasure to continue serving as a City Councilor in the city that raised me. However, like many, I’ve experienced loss and hardships during the pandemic that have made me reflect on how I show up for others and myself. As someone diagnosed with Bipolar II, the past two years in seclusion have taught me that I can only show up as a dimmed version of myself if I don’t take time to heal. To be the person I know I can be, and others need me to be, I must begin to prioritize my well-being. The moment for all of us to choose the path that heals us is now.

As a National Urban Fellow at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, I have found a place to heal and to learn what our city can achieve from other leaders. However, I have not discovered how to create more time. With 60+ hour work weeks being the norm of my program, my current work-life balance is not sustainable. And, if this pandemic has shown me anything, it is the value of time with loved ones and those we wish to support.

I do not wish to become a public servant absent from his community and duties, as we do often see. To perpetuate the idea that once voted in, public servants do not need to continue to truly listen and advocate for their community as it rightfully deserves.

However, I am stepping down with the utmost trust that my City Council colleagues will carry out our shared vision of building a city that works for all of us. As a collective, we have established the foundation to reimagine community policing and prioritize affordable housing in Lancaster while strengthening Council’s role in bridging the community to the work. I am confident that Council will have an easy time finding my replacement. Our community is full of compassionate individuals waiting to be seen as the leaders they know they can be. After I transition back to being Xavi, the resident, I will continue contributing to the community like many residents do every day.

My time on Council has been invaluable. Most proudly, I believe I’ve helped bring equity to the forefront of city government, and I’ll continue to advocate for equity in our community. In partnership with the Lancaster County Community Foundation and residents, a non-governmental Equity Fund will be launching later this month. The goal is to shift power to residents and give a voice to those impacted by community stakeholders’ decisions from start to finish.

Thank you all for the support you’ve shown me during my time as a City Councilor. I appreciate your understanding and look forward to finding new ways to work alongside this community.

Sincerely,
Xavi

CITY OF LANCASTER ANNOUNCES 2022–2023 PACE NEIGHBORS ARTIST COHORT
5 Local Artists to Create Temporary Art to Engage Lancaster City Residents

LANCASTER, PA, Jan. 5, 2022 – Today the City of Lancaster announced the selection of five artists for its Public Art Community Engagement (PACE) Neighbors program.

The 18-month grant-funded program is designed to support a cohort of local artists in making temporary public art projects to engage Lancaster city residents in discovering the connections between art and civic government. PACE Neighbors is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, Franklin & Marshall College, the City of Lancaster’s Comprehensive Plan, the Lancaster County Community Foundation, the High Family Foundation and the Rick and Gail Gray Fund.

The following Lancaster city-based artists have been selected to receive the $15,000 commission and participate in the PACE Neighbors 2022-23 Cohort:

· Matty Geez
· Dominique Miller
· Libby Modern
· Shauna Yorty
· Teatro Paloma

The artists were selected by a committee of arts professionals, artists, community leaders, and two members of the Public Art Advisory Board. The Public Art Community Engagement Manager served as a non-voting member and facilitator of the process.

As a cohort, these artists will have opportunities to connect with other practicing artists and various resources to augment their own work. Information gleaned through the community-based projects will inform the City’s upcoming comprehensive plan, while contributing to neighborhood pride and sense of place.

The program has four main goals to accomplish over the course of the residencies:

Form a diverse cohort of five local artists with various levels of formal arts training who have a desire to extend their studio practice into the public realm.
Support the implementation and professional development of the artist cohort in creating temporary public art projects.
Introduce the program artists to local community organizations for potential partnership and to assist the program artists in honing their social practice, presentation, communication, and other similar skills by providing them access to and training with visiting artists and other experts.
Display the program artists’ work in the residency as part of a larger scale temporary public art installation and exhibition to be held at the Winter Visual Arts Center on the Franklin & Marshall College campus at the culmination of the one-year program period.

PACE is an important step in Lancaster City’s journey in fostering the arts community. Informed by Mayor Sorace’s strategic plan, the program will play a critical part in identifying and addressing needs of each neighborhood. In the future, the City of Lancaster plans to continue to increase its investment in the arts via creative project funding opportunities.

“PACE Neighbors will be key to creatively connecting our community to our comprehensive planning process,” said Mayor Danene Sorace. “I am excited to see local artists bring their talents to these conversations.”
