Rezoning Hearing Postponed! Community Meeting about Park Planning Next Week!
Big updates in these parts!
The Mayor's Office announced yesterday that the rezoning hearing on the park and Penn Plaza would be postponed until Tuesday, March 22 at 1:30 PM in order to allow the community planning process to move forward without predetermined outcomes. See the full press release here.
This is fantastic news and we really appreciate the Administration's efforts to fully engage the community in this important planning process.
Thank you to everyone who helped us lobby for this important schedule change.
(and remember to come to the rescheduled hearing as well!)
Community Park Planning Meeting: Tuesday, February 23 at 6 PM
The next big step will be a public meeting on the planning efforts for the proposed redevelopment of the park and Penn Plaza. A core working group of residents, stakeholders, the City, and the developers will be reporting out on the work to date to the community, and soliciting input.
The meeting will be held at East Liberty Place South, 5836 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh 15206. Children are welcome to attend and to participate! We will have activities for them as well.
Save the Date: Tuesday, March 15 at 6 PM, location TBD.
This will be the second of the two community meetings about the park planning efforts. Stay tuned for more details.
