The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has proposed two sites in downtown Harrisburg for a new federal courthouse: one at North Second and Locust streets; the other at North Third and Pine streets.
If the GSA proceeds with either of these downtown sites, existing businesses would be forced to close. Jobs would be lost. Customers would lose the benefit of the services and conveniences available to them at these locations. Additionally, the city and its residents would suffer from a costly economic loss.
These two sites are the most expensive to acquire. Another site exists at far less cost to taxpayers and with no loss to the city.
We call upon the U.S. General Services Administration to select the city
