Hanover seeks ideas for better downtown


Jason Eckenrode is known for his pizza.

The 23-year-old owns Divino Pizzeria in downtown Hanover, and he has some ideas for bringing more customers to his business.

“They don’t come because they can’t park, so maybe if we could do something about that and the roads, definitely the roads,” he said.

The young business owner may soon get his wish. The borough council wants the public to give suggestions for improving the downtown.

“This is the opportunity for our business owners and our residents to provide input on what they want their downtown to look like for the next 30 to 50 years,” borough manager Michael Bowersox said.

A study expected to be completed by September will look at several things.

“Our end result will be a streetscape, will be something that will give an idea of what it could look like in regards to lighting downtown, in regards to maybe the planters, public art,” councilwoman Barbara Rupp said.

The first public meeting is scheduled Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. You can contact the borough manager with ideas if you can’t make it to the meeting.
