by on August 31, 2012 6:00 AM

The "Together We Are One" campaign will be largely present on the first gameday Saturday in downtown State College.

Residents can pick up campaign materials and get some free coffee and donuts on Saturday, according to the newly redesigned State College Borough website

The announcement said:

"As part of the "Together We Are One" campaign, the State College Borough Parking Department will be handing out 'Together We Are One' promotional materials and giving out free donuts and coffee in the parking garages on Saturday morning.

"Three parking garages are located in downtown State College. Parking garages can be found on the 100 block of South Fraser Street, the 100 block of South Pugh Street, and the 200 block of West Beaver Avenue."

Meanwhile, Borough Parking Manager Charles DeBow sent a letter to all College Heights residents regarding their parking permits for the weekend. 

DeBow's letter read:  

Dear College Heights Residents,

Permissions are still required for football weekends, but we will accept them via email as well. Requests can either be called in directly to me at 278-4700 or via email at Email is the preferred option but please feel free to call me. Please have all requests in by the Thursday before a home football game.

Please email/call with the following information:

1. Make/Model of the vehicle

2. Color

3. License Plate Number and State

4. Address of where the car will be parked

If you have vehicles that will need permission for every game you can note that in your email and that will eliminate the need for additional emails. One suggestion is to get permission for your vehicle(s) for the year and then have your guest(s) park in the driveway, then you will only have to request permission once rather than every week.

Also, if you live on a street where there is a time restriction(2 Hour Residential), you do not need to request permission. These time limits are lifted, as well as the 2am-6am ban, from Friday at noon until Sunday night for all home football weekends.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns,


Looking ahead to the Labor Day holiday on Monday, PennDOT announced there wil be no work done on its Whitehall Road project in observance of the holiday.
