Zone State College: Community Workshop

The Borough of State College is conducting a major update to its Zoning Ordinance. The current ordinance is now out-of-date, and needs to be comprehensively updated. The Zone State College Project began earlier this year and work will continue Tuesday, September 26, during a joint Borough Council and Planning Commission meeting. After this joint meeting, the Borough will be hosting a community workshop to inform the public about the zoning update and solicit their feedback.

Clarion Associates, a land-use consulting firm based out of Denver, Colorado.

The zoning update will help ensure the Borough's Zoning Ordinance is internally consistent, modernized, aligned with contemporary zoning best practices, and more user-friendly. To accomplish this, we are working to educate the public and engage them in the zoning update process. This community workshop is just one of the many public involvement opportunities.
