NVWC Update

Toll Brothers executives and engineering consultants are continuing to assess the feasibility of an alternative student housing development site – on land also owned by Penn State – near the intersection of West College Ave. and Blue Course Drive (across from the Waffle Shop).

Penn State executives continue to be oddly cagey in their communications with NVWC representatives about the possible land swap.

Water coalition leaders continue to be concerned about the possibility that Charles Elliott of Toll Brothers and John Sepp of PennTerra Engineering align with the water coalition in supporting a land swap to protect public water supplies and give Toll Brothers a positive entrance to the State College market (which would be great!), only to run into obstructive Penn State executives and trustees who refuse to do the land swap and might even sue Toll Brothers for breach of contract in an attempt to force Toll Brothers to build on the public watershed.

That would be a super-strange outcome to this long, long water and farmland conservation campaign.

Further updates when available.
