And don't forget Bank branches. Hanover needs more banks because we just don't have enough already.

I'm sorry, but since when is Spring Grove NOT considered to be in "OUR area" to a Hanovarian? Are you unable to commute the 15 mintues from Hanover to Spring Grove for a job??? Just sit back and keep criticizing while you collect your welfare check!

Haven't you heard of the great wall of Hanover? It prevents people that were born in Hanover from ever leaving. Only "outsiders" can leave to get jobs in exotic places like York, Baltimore and Harrisburg.

So true. It's like driving into 1975 everytime I drive home. I work in the scary land of Towson, where they have building as big as giants and fast cars that'll make your head spin. Scary.

Spring Grove is, in the minds of Hanovarians, outside of the area where you may fall off of the Earth.

Hanover should have an Invasion of NASCAR event like york used to have and ruined. There were 75000 people there the day Dale Earnhardt came to the event.

Never said Spring Grove was too far to travel, but Hanover itself could make more revenue by getting those businesses "in town". Make Hanover look a little more attractive for people to want to buy all these new houses being built but not being sold, i.e. those things that are sitting empty on Moul Feild. Who would want to buy a house in Hanover for a temp job or fast food employment? If they want alot of residential area, they need as much good employment to cover that area, otherwise, people will look elsewhere to buy a home. With the price of gas, yes... travel as little as possible to work.

And just to add to that........ 300 new jobs = 300 new homes that could / will be built in that township, that is 300 more people paying property tax, 300 people paying school tax, 300 people paying privlige tax, etc..... give or take with commuters.

Just a thought, Hanover is missing out on soo much more then job oppertunities by not getting real jobs "in town".

Am I making sense to ANYONE!?

That's why people work in MD because Hanover wants to pay a over qualified person less than minimum wage....
And if you work in Hanover or the surrounding area you would have to be at the same company for 20+ years to make even 30k

Professoinal what? Lawyers? Stock Traders? No!

This area is known for "Where industry and Agriculture meet" Farmland is being sold to developers to build houses that no one can afford, so the only thing left is industry. I would not know the first thing about getting big industry to come to Hanover, but I am sure it can be done.

Yes, Hanover needs to get out there and start "selling" itself to these businesses to get them to come to Hanover. No more strip malls, we want real new jobs in the area! I never thought of how much money the borough could make by bringing jobs here. Very good outlook on things.
