Community Workshop for Allegheny Commons

We at the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy are excited to work alongside our partners at the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny Commons Initiative, Northside Leadership Conference and the greater community to restore Allegheny Commons Park. Please join your fellow park users on August 30th for our first community workshop to develop the action plan we need for implementing the master plan. The professional team is led by LaQuatra Bonci Associates, and includes eDesign Dynamics, Cleo Consulting, and Fourth Economy.

At this first of three community-wide meetings, we’ll review the 2002 Allegheny Commons Master Plan and kick off the action planning process. This effort will be completed by the end of 2017, and will produce strategies and cost estimates for implementing the 2002 Master Plan.

We encourage community members to come prepared to provide input at the meeting. There will be a brief introduction followed by a series of work stations on a range of topics we will be tackling in this process. Thank you to the National Aviary for hosting us that evening.

We ask that you register online here. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. Thank you!
