I am considering moving to the Harrisburg area. That can mean the general areas of East Shore as well as West Shore. Yes, I know the area. I cannot understand why there has not been more input from members on this. Does this mean not too many people care enough about this area? This is a concern to me, as I see so many folks jumping in to comment on areas that are smaller, less promising and just plain not as progressive, safe, attractive, stable, etc., as this area is.

South Central PA has a wealth of almost anything one can desire, and if not here, gosh....so close to other metro areas that are just a short trip away. Any ideas on why this thread/idea of separate forum just petered out?

A new sub-forum was recently created for Syracuse in Upstate NY, and that region seems to have less of an activity level than the proposed South Central Pennsylvania sub-forum would if it were to be created. The sub-forum would encompass the following six rapidly-growing counties:

Adams County (Gettysburg, Hanover)
Cumberland County (Camp Hill, Carlisle)
Dauphin County (Harrisburg, Hershey)
Lancaster County (Lancaster)
Lebanon County (Lebanon)
York County (York)

I feel confident that there would be plenty of forum activity to support a new sub-forum that would encompass this region, but the decision is obviously out of my hands. What do others think?

Despite the overwhelming interest, our administrator has informed me that there are NO plans now or in the future to create any new "regional" sub-forums. At the very best we may be able to plead our case for a Harrisburg city sub-forum, but even that seems unlikely at this point. I thought this eight-county region would be a great sub-forum since the cities contained therein all functioned interdependently upon one another and were all experiencing growth pressures from either Baltimore or Philadelphia, but such is life. Our administrator does a good job on here, and we ought to respect his wishes.

I am in agreement with the folks who suggested a NWPA forum. Most of my pix are from that region and I'd love to have a place to post them. Would be nice to see more info from that area in general.

I agree to many subforums. Look at Florida they have like 8? and that side of the forum is a complete mess.
