The Greater York Region of York County encompasses the center of the county, stretching from the Susquehanna River in the east to the rolling hills of Jackson and Paradise Townships in the west. York City sits in the heart of the region. The majority of the county’s population resides and works in the Greater York Region. As the County’s hub for office, retail and industrial employment, the Greater York Region will likely continue to serve as the County’s predominate region for growth.
