Be part of the creation of Pittsburgh’s first Bike Boulevard

The City of Pittsburgh and the Oakland Planning and Development Corporation (OPDC) are looking to re-envision  Louisa St in Oakland.

The idea is to make it a neighborhood centric street, creating a pleasant and safe walkway and bikeway through the neighborhood.  There are lots of ideas on the table, including Pittsburgh’s first “bike boulevard,” street-scaping, lighting, etc. There is also a staircase where they are looking to brighten up and beautify as well as installing the city’s first bicycle rail, to help people with bicycles ascend and descend the steps.

But they want your input!

Join the public meeting and give your ideas.

Thursday, May 2

7PM at the Oakland Career Center, 294 Semple St

For more information,

See the OPDC Website

A supportive mayor is the difference between expanding on bike-friendly initiatives or a halt. Show the candidates that biking and walking issues are popular, and can even swing an election!
