Comment on the DRAFT HARB Design Guidelines.
The Borough of State College is continuing its community-focused education and planning process to consider how two of its most heritage-rich neighborhoods, the Holmes-Foster/Highlands and College Heights Historic Districts, could be preserved for future generations. In December of 2017, Borough Council passed Ordinance 2104 that established a Local Historic District and a Historical and Architectural Review Board (HARB). This Ordinance will require a review of all contributing buildings in the historic districts that are undergoing additions to the main building, demolition of part or all of the main building, and new construction of a main building within the local historic district.
The next phase of the Heritage State College project will be the review and adoption of the HARB Design Guidelines that will be utilized for the review of projects. Please review the DRAFT HARB Design Guidelines by downloading the guidelines below.
*All comments will be shared with Borough Council and Staff as they prepare the final version of the HARB Design Guideline for the final presentation on Monday, July 16.
