The City of Lancaster may be less than 40 years old, but it has seen remarkable changes during that time. It serves, along with Palmdale, as the municipal center of the bourgeoning Antelope Valley. As Lancaster contemplates further change on the horizon, understanding messages that are embedded in the current landscape can inform the conversation about efforts to shape the future.
