I received an Master’s degree from PSU in 1957. Penn State was a much different university then. Some points I want to make with respect to the proposed Toll Brothers development are:
1. Is there a need for luxury student housing? There is much concern about the widening damage done by the increasing wealth disparity in America.
2. Should Penn State be associated with and causing air pollution from car traffic when we should make every effort to reduce such pollution?
3. While I think there will be an effect on the State College water source from this development, whether there is or not, should Penn State be the villain if actual damage occurs?
I know it would be difficult for Penn State to reverse course on the Toll Brothers development but please weigh carefully the balance with the problems noted above.
