Public Mtg On Community And Transit Improvements In Uptown And Oakland

The City of Pittsburgh is seeking public input on an action plan for transit improvements and community development in the corridor between Downtown and neighborhoods east.
Two public meetings are set for next week. They are:
  • Tuesday, May 5, 2015 Uptown/Downtown, Noon – 2:00 p.m., Duquesne University, Power Center Ballroom 1015 Forbes Avenue
  • Wednesday, May 6, 2015 Oakland, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., William Pitt Student Union, 3959 Fifth Avenue
At these upcoming public meetings, the City of Pittsburgh will provide an overview of coordinated planning efforts in the corridor along Fifth and Forbes avenues, including Downtown, Uptown, Oakland, and other East End neighborhoods. This will involve a review of ongoing planning for transit improvements, including bus rapid transit (BRT), and upcoming planning for an EcoInnovation District in the Uptown neighborhood.
