They are building a new store in the twp just down from Cheif Dato's Near the Golf place. There is no where in town large enough to put it without spending thosands of buck buying homes and tearing them down. It's cheaper to build in the twp all open land.

Speaking of closing, heard the city actually got L & L Quick Lube to sell. Supposedly took away their parking there. Another business gone. Wonder if it's true.

Urban sprawl is exactly what you describe. Instead of keeping DOWNTWON Derry alive (not that it is), or instead of rebuilding DOWNTOWN Derry, farmland is being used when land already zoned commercial sits deteriorating.

This is why Latrobe -- died.
Derry is dead, but moving even a DOllar General outside of the city limits nails the coffin shut.

Too bad!

Stupid moron city leaders, all around! both places, for years and years and years.

This is NOT urban sprawl. The concept of urban sprawl affecting rural town like Latrobe and Derry is ludicrous.

There are many, many reasons why Latrobe (and a thousand other small towns in the US) have died. The migration of retail businesses from downtown is just one of them.

Here you go again thinking that anyone in the city government can do anything about this. It's not up to them. They have no leverage and virtually NOTHING of value to offer any business either coming into town or leaving.
