The fifth York County Capital Projects Sales and Use Tax Program will be voted on by residents of York County on November 5, 2024. This is also known as the Pennies for Progress 5 Program.
This program is a continuation of the previous 1-cent sales tax program passed by referendum in November 2017 and not an addition to the previous tax. If approved, the collections will begin on May 1, 2025.
By State law, the projects are selected by a 6 member citizen commission. In order to determine which projects will be included on the referendum, the Pennies 5 Commission will be holding public meetings throughout 2023 taking project requests from municipalities as well as the public.
Citizens can attend the meetings to request projects or submit a project request through the Pennies' website. Projects being considered are any transportation related project, including but not limited to widenings, intersection/safety improvements, resurfacing, and sidewalks.
