Centre County announces dates for Centre Crest public hearings

Centre County released the dates for the Centre Crest public hearings at the Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday.

Five meetings have been scheduled across the county from late February to late March, and the commissioners are asking anyone who has thoughts on the potential change for the nursing home to a public nonprofit to come speak, county administrator Tim Boyde said.

Chairman Steve Dershem said after a short introduction the floor will be open to the audience for the rest of the time. The hearings will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end no later than 8:30 p.m.

The first event will be on Feb. 27 at the Library of Mountaintop Elementary School, followed by March 6 at the State College Municipal Building, March 12 at Centre Hall Elementary School, March 20 at Magesterial District Judge Allen Sinclair’s office in Philipsburg and March 27 at the Bellefonte Courthouse Annex.
