It's a nice facility, and they are in process of increasing the size of the concourses but there i don't think there is room for a third runway.

Good for York. Noticed in the article that it is local politicians pushing it......not state level ones from Columbia who were voted in by residents of the other main metro areas?

The Chester county article is a tad old seeing as it said 2000 jobs at the Boeing plant, currently there are 7,200 people working there with plans for another 2000. Not including other related companies that are coming to the area to be near Boeing.

Not surprising but at the same time not all that good. I for one like it when the state has growth across the majority of the state rather than certain clusters, as it stands both the uplands and midlands are pretty obviously urbanizing across the width of the state, then you get to the low country and it looks like there are 3 completely separate metros, which there are but still.

Yeah, I was just saying to him, that its political nature they the folks in Columbia will pursue interests of their home voters. That's how all politicians in the world are. Human nature. Please those who vote for you.

if the state is not working with these counties for a possible 7k jobs, there is a huge problem. The state worked to get BMW, ZF, Boeing, Continental, Hoffman LaRoche etc....7k jobs will help the entire state, it is much easier to make budgets work in a growing revenue environment than not. 7k jobs may balance the budget enough where politicians can reduce the tax rate across the state, that means a ton for a state like SC.

if these jobs materialize, I hope they are net new jobs to the Charlotte metro.

Now you see that's where people in SC will have an issue. We want SC to have more jobs but by associating these jobs with a NC metro you make it so that people want them to come to a more SC metro.

That is childish......does not matter to the state. The state generates tax revenue whether these jobs are in Fort Mill or Summerville. I understand the state multiplier but if the state won't see these jobs otherwise, it does not benefit SC at all. There are politics at play, Charleston wants to protect its turf and thinks that everything in SC should be there.

If these 7k jobs pay on average $50k annually, that is an additional $17m per year to the state which can pay for a tax cut (which politicans in SC love more than anything) or pay for road improvements assuming all else is equal.

Why do you care if these jobs are looking at the Charlotte metro area?

5,000 new jobs may be pending in York County, including moves by LPL Financial, Lash Group from Charlotte - Charlotte Business Journal

Disappointed to see this, instead of net new jobs, York is just moving 5k jobs across the state line. The bright spot for SC, tax benefits and it is easier to sell companies like this on SC when you have a few 15 story buildings with similar companies. SC needs to recruit more companies like this.
