“Home in State College” Facebook page to showcase Borough living
The Borough of State College is making it easier to form community, even online.
A Facebook page, “Home in State College,” has launched as a way to share listings of homes for sale or for rent in State College and is tailored for both professionals and the local workforce who may be interested in living in the town.
While the page was introduced by former Mayor Elizabeth Goreham in November, Mayor Don Hahn has also supported the page.
“As a Centre County native, a Penn State graduate and Borough homeowner, I know that State College is a wonderful place to grow up, to go to school and to settle down,” Mayor Don Hahn said in a release regarding the page. “As Mayor, I know that the Borough is committed to keeping it that way.
“One of the greatest benefits of the State College Borough is its location,” he continued. “Approximately 4.56 square miles large, with a world-class university and a vibrant downtown in the middle of it, the Borough is a pedestrian’s paradise. It has the highest percentage of people who walk and bike to work among Pennsylvania cities. Our bus system has the third highest mass transit ridership in the state. Our regional growth boundary has helped to maintain low commuting times and to preserve the area’s physical beauty.”
Officials describe the page as a place to make the case “for the quality of life in strong, vibrant Borough neighborhoods that are close to the Penn State campus, downtown State College, schools, and community centers such as farmers markets, as well as shopping and other amenities in the greater State College area.”
More information on the page and opportunities and resources associated with it are available through the Home in State College site which will be presented at the Downtown State College Farmers Market, from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19, 2018.
