03 - 20 - 2012 Public comments sought this fall for Paterno Way
(CDT) This fall, 2 municipal governments will meet jointly to take public comment on the petition requesting that Park Ave. in State College become Paterno Way between North Atherton St. & US 322. The State College Borough Council President reported Monday night that, after meeting with the College Twp. Council Chairman, the 2 decided it may work best to hold a joint public hearing on the issue in September. The issue reached both municipalities earlier this month after a petition with 7,000 signatures requesting the change in honor of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was submitted.
