Parking issue could kill hopes for state call center in Columbia Borough

A proposed state call center that could have brought 129 jobs to Columbia might be off the table because of a lack of parking.

  1. Gee ... wonder why this reads like a press release? The borough's side is brought up; the developer's side is brought up. What about the Customer's side (the Department of Human Services)?

    Think this might be an agenda-driven press-release. Little real news here. Just thoughts expressed with no real substance.

  3. Place the call center at the waste water treatment plant. There will be plenty of room for parking.

    1. Columbia Borough already sold the land to LASA!

    2. They only sold the collection system. The waste water treatment plant property stays with the Borough.

  7. Let the building go into foreclosure. It can be gotten for pennies on the dollar after that. Commercial buildings aren't worth anything in Cola., & this one is in a flood plain & on rented land. Nobody should pay what's owed on this building, including the Hambones.

    1. The Hambones is NOT paying off the debt, the taxpayers are via borough council.

  12. If you believe in the power of prayer, then pray this turkey doesn't come to roost here. It's not in Columbia's best interest. The salesman is selling us pies in the sky.
