College Township Council takes on Hilltop rezoning Tuesday

The College Township Council will hold a special meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday regarding the rezoning request for the Hilltop Mobile Home Park.

Earlier in June, the College Township Planning Commission recommended the council deny the request to rezone the property.

Lafayette, Ind.-based developer Trinitas Ventures requested the site be rezoned from mobile home park to R3 residential, which would allow a proposed 275- to 300-unit student housing complex. Travis Vencel, of Trinitas, said the units are called “student housing” because they’re designed for 18- to 26-year-olds, but that anyone can live there.

The meeting will he held at 1481 E. College Ave. in State College.
