Changing the Face of the Allegheny Riverfront, Tonight

29 Apr

Attention Pittsburghettes and Pittsburghers,

Reminder about the Allegheny Riverfront Meeting tonight! (And after that there is going to be a fantastic dance party at the Brillobox).

This is a major cycling corridor, and plans and ideas are being put on the table that need your input.

Thursday, April 29th

6:30 to 8:00

Pittsburgh

“For decades, Pittsburgh’s riverfronts were used as transportation corridors for industrial production, and the land surrounding them did not connect to our communities. Today we recognize the riverfronts as our most treasured assets that have tremendous potential to improve our quality of life. We now have the opportunity to reconnect our neighborhoods, reclaim these waterways as amenities, and provide new venues for recreation.”
– Mayor Luke Ravenstahl

The URA has spent much of the past year working with stakeholders on a vision plan for the Allegheny Riverfront extending from downtown to Highland Park.  They are in the final stages of the plan and our consultants have pulled together a series of recommendations related to ecology, transportation, design and market – all based on substantial analysis and community feedback.  The URA wants to share these recommendations with you and hear your reactions to these recommendations before the final plan is published in May.  This is a major cycling corridor, and plans and ideas are being put on the table that need your input.
