Cause for concern

Put on your walking shoes, go up West Whitehall Road to the intersection of Blue Course Drive, and take a hike on the pristine and beautiful path that goes over to Branch Road.

It will all soon be gone.

The recent court ruling against the citizen plaintiffs, including local farmers, in favor of Toll Brothers and its proposed luxury student housing development, will mean Penn State can now sell this farm land to the Philadelphia-based contractors.

The development will destroy mature trees, increase air pollution and traffic congestion, and compromise the drinking water for many State College residents.

We should all be concerned.
