Potluck Saturday July 22; upcoming meetings; links to op-eds and letters to the editor


Occupation Update & Potluck

The occupation is now 6 and a half weeks old, and will celebrate the 7-week mark with a potluck at the site this Saturday, July 22, at 6 p.m. Please come out! Facebook event page.

Forthcoming Meetings

Thanks to the occupation, the many yard signs all over our community, many letters to the editor and other forms of pressure on Penn State, we now have two meetings scheduled with decision makers.

On Tuesday, July 25, Nittany Valley Water Coalition reps are scheduled to meet with Penn State reps to discuss possible alternative sites for the Toll Brothers project, that could become part of a land swap.

And on Wednesday, August 2, NVWC reps are scheduled to meet with Penn State and Toll Brothers reps to continue assessing the possibilities for a land swap.

Op-Eds and Letters to the Editor

There has been a good amount of public discussion in our two main local newspapers – the Centre Daily Times and the Centre County Gazette/StateCollege.com. Below are some of the links:

Expanding the Reach

We are interested in getting the message out to a statewide audience if possible, especially as the PA Supreme Court is considering whether or not to hear the NVWC appeal of the Commonwealth Court decision.

Contact info for newspapers in Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh below – please write letters.

NVWC also has several thousand copies of a small flier to be hung on doorknobs around our community.

Please email nittanyvalleywatercoalition@gmail.com if you can help with that.
