As we begin to put the pandemic behind us and rebuild our economy, the Shippensburg region has an added reason to celebrate. Shippensburg Township supervisors have approved a proposal from Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment to operate a Parx casino by redeveloping an abandoned facility at the Shippen Towne Center retail complex between Walnut Bottom Road and U.S. Route 11.

At any point in time, a project of this magnitude is welcome news. Coming right now, after a lengthy delay and amid the crushing job losses created by the pandemic, the project is an absolute gamechanger.
