Dauphin County Commissioners Join Pa. Senators in Groundbreaking for 1.8-Million Square Foot Industrial Project in Londonderry Township
The Dauphin County Commissioners’ Office was part of a groundbreaking ceremony Monday in Londonderry Township that will commence an industrial project expected to bring hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue in coming years.
The 1.8-million square foot project is located in the area of 306 Hoffer Road in Londonderry Township.
Two large warehouse facilities are planned for the location. Currently, no tenants are in place.
The project is expected to create up 700 jobs.
“Dauphin County supports this type of economic growth that brings with it job opportunities for hundreds of residents,” said County Commissioner Chad Saylor, who attended the groundbreaking.
Project owners, First Industrial Development, and creators, Vision Group Ventures, were also on hand, along with Pa. Sens. David Argall, John DiSanto and Chris Gebhard.
“The closure of Three Mile Island prompted a significant loss in earned income tax for Londonderry Township, and this project can help fill that void,” County Commissioner Mike Pries said.
The annual tax revenue for the township is expected to increase annually by $260,000, according to Vision Group Ventures.
Increased taxes to Dauphin County, per current millage, would be approximately $360,000 per year.
“There are a lot of potential benefits to this project, and we look forward to tracking progress in coming months and years,” County Commissioner George P. Hartwick III said.
