Commerce Bank starts petition

Swatara Township-based Commerce Bank has started a petition opposing the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) final two choices for the construction of a new federal courthouse in downtown Harrisburg.

Swatara Township-based Commerce Bank has started a petition opposing the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) final two choices for the construction of a new federal courthouse in downtown Harrisburg.

In June, GSA narrowed its choices to the corners of North Third and Pine streets and North Second and Locust streets, which would also encompass the corner of North Second and Walnut streets. Dauphin County’s Commerce operates a branch at the corner of North Second and Walnut streets.

Rather than build on the two corners that would force businesses to relocate, Commerce is urging GSA to choose the vacant corner of Sixth and Reily streets.

Commerce’s preferred location would encourage development nearby and preserve existing businesses and jobs downtown, Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Gary L. Nalbandian said in a written statement.

Those opposing GSA’s final site choices can sign the petition in Commerce’s branches and online at this Web site.
