Good for economy

Coopers RV Centers Inc. is seeking to open a second recreational-vehicle location in Allegheny Township. Coopers is a locally owned, small business headquartered in Murrysville.

Since we've grown, we actively sought out Allegheny Township as a secondary location to promote economic growth in the local community. The opening of a new, state-of-the art building will bring new business and employment opportunities to the township.

The RV sales center will have a positive impact on the township by driving up business and property values in the surrounding area.

To ensure a positive beginning to this second location, I've worked closely with Allegheny Township officials. We all want to ensure the proposed development of the new location will comply with all zoning requirements.

The relationship has been overwhelmingly positive and the township is currently reviewing a request to change the residential zoning to permit a conditional use on the property.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
