The Northern Region of York County often identifies itself with the Harrisburg market. The region is home to small downtowns such as Dillsburg and sprawling residential subdivisions. Major transportation corridors such as Route 15, Interstate 83 and the PA Turnpike, intersect the region. Many sites along these corridors are posed for development in the next 10 years and the region will likely increase its share of industrial, office and retail jobs in the County.
