By: WJAC Web Staff
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- An offer to buy one of the State College Area Schools Districts oldest buildings was made by Penn State, and it is causing concern for people who live in the neighborhood.
The school district will not release too much information about the offer for the College Heights school building but said the school board approved.
Officials from Penn State said the building would be used to house the universitys press office.
The borough can choose to purchase the land, and people who live in the neighborhood said they are unsure of the offer.
I think the concerns are more what kind of neighbor will PSU be short and long term, said the president of College Heights Association. How will it keep the building and how much will parking be?
Six months has been given to the borough to make the decision and the College Heights building houses the districts printing operations.
