Ribbon Cutting for the Allegheny River Greenway

The Allegheny River Greenway was officially opened on Sunday, May 1st with a ribbon cutting ceremony!  After the ribbon cutting, after the ceremony, participants walked along the edge of the Greenway to scout out future sites for improvements such as invasive species removal and trail entrances.

The Allegheny River Greenway Committee is made up of area residents with support from the Morningside Area Community Council, the Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association, and the offices of City Councilman Patrick Dowd and State Representative Dom Costa.  The Committee chose to preserve these lands as an official City greenway due to the significant benefit to the proximate neighborhoods and the City as a whole.  Such benefits include, but are not limited to, passive recreation opportunities, stormwater management, erosion and sedimentation control, enhanced aesthetics, air quality improvements, a positive identifying neighborhood feature, and stabilizing or increasing property values.
