GN, McKinney Properties To Allow Limited State Patty’s Parties
Students residing in McKinney (Meridian, The Heights at State College, Calder Commons) and GN Properties are in luck for State Patty’s Day weekend, as occupants will be allowed to hold limited parties in compliance with building rules. A memo was sent to all GN and McKinney residents outlining respective weekend restrictions.
Contrary to usual State Patty’s restrictions, Meridian residents will be allowed to hold parties as long as they’re registered with the office. The building had previously banned State Patty’s parties for the last three years, but decided to alter its policies regarding the tradition.
Rules for Meridian-registered parties include no more than double standard room occupancy along with a $750 fine for those in breach of noise ordinances. The standard weekend security team will double up, meaning there will be plenty of security on hand throughout the weekend. Residents must register parties with the office.
Calder Commons residents will be bound under stricter rules. Per a warning posted by State College Police, nobody under the age of 21 will be permitted to consume alcohol inside the complex. Noise violations will be heavily enforced, with a minimum fine of $750 awaiting any residents found in violation of such rules.
GN residents will be required to abide by rules similar to The Meridian’s policies, per the memo to tenants. GN will assume a zero tolerance policy for the weekend, meaning there will be “no leniency” regarding matters of noise or behavior. Individuals in breach of these rules will be given “immediate citations” to police.
The memo also states that parties must be registered before 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 26 with “only a limited number of apartments” being permitted to register. Parties that can be heard “more than two doors away” will be promptly shut down.
Maximum fines and penalties for all violations will be enforced by police, and the university will be alerted regarding any such violations.
The Heights at State College will keep its normal weekend policies in place while also enforce a zero tolerance policy regarding noise and behavior-related incidents.
We’ll update once we receive more information regarding party restrictions.
