City Map

The City of York is located at the "Crossroads of the Midwest," at the intersection of Interstate 80 and the "Pan American Highway" designated locally as US Highway 81). 

Located in the midst of the most productive and fertile farmland in America, York is the hub of economic activity for the area. With a thriving downtown retail area, York also has an active commercial sector located near the intersection of the two major roadways. Industrial companies located in York include an ethanol plant, aerospace component manufacturer and companies that trade both nationally and internationally. 

York is also known as an educational center, being the home of York College since its founding in 1890. It also has three large public institutions (elementary, middle and high school), as well as three parochial grade schools, an alternative school, Epworth Village (a 125-year-old housing/educational/treatment facility for youth), and the Region V program (for developmentally challenged individuals). 

Recreation in York is abundant, as the community boasts a 394-seat movie theater, the Yorkshire Playhouse (located in a historical downtown building, providing live entertainment), five city parks, a new family aquatic center, a number of baseball diamonds and sand volleyball courts, a community center, two museums and a lake. 

Healthcare facilities are abundant in York, with one hospital, a nursing home, assisted living facilities, a specialty clinic, a number of general practitioners, hospice care, home health providers, and more. 

New streets have been constructed in recent years, and the water/wastewater facilities are consistently updated. High speed internet access is available, as are all other technological amenities. The municipal airport has been updated in the past few years, with runways extended and lighting/facilities improved.

The City of York has much to offer, when it comes to quality of life, public facilities, job and business opportunities. The York community welcomes your interest in joining us!
