City to host riverfront zoning public open houses Sept. 13 and 14

By September 6, 2017Blog
People sit facing the river on the steps of the Point State Park promenade.

Why should you care about Pittsburgh riverfront zoning? The issue may sound technical, but it really comes down to a simple question: how do you and your fellow Pittsburghers want to use our city’s riverfronts?

Pittsburgh City Planning is hosting two public open houses on September 13 and 14 to get your input. City Planning is working to balance a mix of riverfront uses, from industry to residential to recreation, while also looking to increase access to the water and create common-sense zoning along Pittsburgh’s riverfronts.

Riverlife will  be there (along with light refreshments!) so please join us for either informative session. More info about each open house at the Pittsburgh Riverfront Zoning website.
