The Wilkinsburg Plan: It’s Not Too Late to Participate


Work on The Wilkinsburg Plan continues as residents show up for public meetings all around the Borough. At meetings on Tuesday, April 7 at Wilkinsburg High School and Wednesday, April 8 at Three Rivers Center for Independent Living residents broke out into small groups and discussed everything from the community’s image to the impact of blighted neighborhoods and vacancies in the business district. They developed suggestions for educating residents about the impact of blight and litter and strategies for working with the media to publicize some of the community’s development successes. But the work continues – and residents have a unique opportunity to provide input about topics such as housing, neighborhoods, the business district, transportation, and the Borough’s image. The information collected at the public meetings will be used to develop a plan for the future of the community. Your Input Matters – Be Part of the Solution!
