Motorsports Task Force (2007)


The Lancaster County Board of Commissioners established the Motorsports Task Force to assist the Board in addressing the complex issues involved with motorsports facilities. The Task Force was asked to address the following issues:

  2. Economic, fiscal, social and environmental benefits and costs to the community;
  3. Pros and cons of providing motorsports activities in one general location as opposed to decentralized faciliites for a specific motorsport activity;
  4. Identify and rank the most promising and acceptable locations in Lancaster County for motorsports facilities and/or activities; and
  5. Evaluate and make recommendations on the most appropriate business model for providing new facilities for participants and spectators.
