One year after giving Royal Farms a final conditional approval to build a store in Littlestown, the Borough Council said last week that it is time for the company to "step up or step out."

Yo Former Resident, thanks for leaving us. I'll bet the average IQ went up a few points after your departure. "Advise" and "worse", nice grammar skills. We may be a small town but we don't need your small mind.

Anyway, for those of you who want to give the Borough council a hard time for giving RF an ultimatum, keep in mind that this project has been in the works since 2007. I've graduated from LHS and college in that time and nothing has been done to the place except for removing the house.

As my Momma likes to say, "Sh*t or get off the pot!"

If you grew up in Littlestown your heart is always there. I had alot of good memories growing up there. We "true" Littonians will always defend our town..........It would be nice to get this store started since and rejuvenate that corner.

Would love to see ROYAL FARMS move up 97 north to the 2 taverns area and put in a store,, They would get just as much business & not have to listen to the Littlestown Boroughs Bull$hit!

Seems that when left unencumbered by local yokels. Royal Farm can develop a store quite quickly. The ones in Hanover and Dover went up in a reasonable amount of time. Just goes to show who is causing the delay. I doubt you will see a WAWA in the area any time soon. There is a "gentleman" agreement between them and Sheets, they do not build in the others area for the most part. Not sure about the Wrightsville situation, but I would guess they have the same sort of "stellar" leadership L-town has.

If you are so smart then you try to open a business in town. The town I live in now is smaller than Littlestown and we businesses opening up everywhere and they are BOOMING. So my small mind is in a better place. This is my point you folks in Littlestown have a Beverly Hills attidude and you live in a DUMP.

If you weren't born and raised in the Littlestown area and your family doesn't go back generations, you are unwelcome in the area especially if you are a Marylander. If RF wasn't Maryland based, they probably would have had the go ahead a long time ago.

After looking into RF situation,I think the real problem has been the Planning Commission. When you
read the council minutes it appears the council not
only worked with RF but pretty much gave them all that they asked for each time RF came before them.
The four+years this has been going on the interaction between RF and the Planning Commission has been the issue. After it finally got to the council, it was RF who made promises&committments they did not keep. I seriously doubt the council will kick RF out the door, if you were there at the meeting J. White recommended a deadline to get RF back to the table. Borough Council has done all they can do it is up to RF to make some decissions.

The truth will come out eventually.
The old-timers in L'town say that the RF site sits directly on top of a mass grave for Confederate soldiers who died of wounds in L'Town in July 1863. Wounded and dead Union troops were put on trains headed north from L'town; the Confederate boys who died of their wounds before they could be sent south were quickly buried.
While there was a house for years on top of the hill at the RF site, the area further back where they were excavating for the new store a couple of years ago had never been developed. When they hit bones, they stopped and the saga began. No one wants to touch this property with a 10 foot pole now.
Someone should "dig" into this to see if it's true.
