Potential Greenway Designation

Please attend a community meeting on Thursday, July 1st, 2010, 7:00pm – 8:00pm, at the Union Project, 801 N. Negley Avenue, to learn more about the Greenway designation and whether it makes sense for the green hillside along Baker and Butler Streets in the Morningside and Stanton Heights neighborhoods. This meeting will be attended by the City Planning Department, the Real Estate Department, and Councilman Patrick Dowd.

The City of Pittsburgh, in partnership with community groups, may designate publicly owned land as “Greenway”. Lands that are designated as part of a Greenway have certain protections from development, typical park programming, and other high-impact uses. Alternatively, this land can be improved by community members interested in fighting dumping, removing invasive species from the land, or creating small, unpaved trails for community use.

Please help us spread the word to your neighbors., If you have any questions, please contact Councilman Dowd’s office at 412-255-2140.
