Design Guide

Why Does State College Have a Design Guide?



The intention of the State College Borough Design Guide is to promote an appropriate, beautiful, safe, and sustainable built environment in the Borough of State College. The Design Guide both defines the current state of the Borough and its future trajectory.

What is the Design Guide?



The Design Guide was developed by the members of the Design Review Board and Borough staff to help build a place where people of all ages and incomes will want to visit and live. The guide provides valuable information for developers on community appropriate design, suggestions on aesthetic design within the historical context of the Borough, ideas for healthy streetscape design, and community goals for sustainable sites and structures.

Additionally, developers will find helpful tips on the Borough's review and permitting process.
