Harborcreek Planning Commission Approves Student Complex Plans

Posted: Updated:

Plans to build an additional student housing complex near Penn State Behrend are a step closer to reality.

On Thursday evening, the Harborcreek Planning Commission approved the developer--Hudson Companies--plans. 

As it stands now, the complex would be built off Old Station Road.  It's a four story building which would include 61 housing units for 190 students.

Harborcreek currently has an ordinance which  requires 50 feet of green space between development and residential houses.  But, the developer's plans only allow for
25 feet.  A change, that has many residents upset.

"It's not just a 'not in my backyard' syndrome," said concerned citizen Scott Sinnott.  "We just want the township supervisors to go by the ordinance that's written."

But according to Tyler Hudson of Hudson Companies, they have followed all the rules.

"We're in compliance with all the ordinances and everything set forth in Harborcreek's requirements," said Hudson.  "We took a lot of time working with local engineers and our architecture team to make sure we have the best product out there."

Harborcreek Supervisors are scheduled to vote on the project on May 15.
