I regret to inform everyone that we are cancelling the February HPCC meeting tomorrow night at Union Project.
It seems as though Union Project is overbooked for the evening and St. Andrew’s is still under construction so we find ourselves without a meeting place for the moment.
We will resume meeting regularly on Thursday, March 20th. The Parks Conservancy will be on hand to help us review three (3) potential leash free dog run areas in the park and to review best practices for dog parks currently in use across the country.
All dog owners are urged to attend the March meeting to share your thoughts on each of the locations under consideration. Community feedback is encouraged and important to the process. I hope to see you there!
HPCC President – Monica Watt
Please join us for the HPCC November Meeting – Thursday, November 21 at 7PM at Union Project. Everyone is invited to attend.
We have a full evening planned:
· Rob Collins of the Bryant Street Market will be on hand to answer questions from the neighborhood concerning his beer-only liquor license application and how it will affect the market.
· Paul Svoboda from the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh will also be joining us to discuss East Liberty’s TRID planning and how it will affect the intersections surrounding Highland Park – East Liberty Boulevard and N. Highland Avenue specifically.
· I will be discussing some planned changes to the intersection at Bryant St. and N. Negley that came out of the HPCC Pedestrian Safety Review that we submitted to the City last year. All homeowners impacted by that intersection are urged to come join in the discussion.
· Dave Atkinson, HPCC VP and Education Committee Chair, will discuss the proposed closing of Woolslair, part of Pittsburgh Public Schools.
