A series on addressing blight, offered by the Local Government Academy. Costs a bit, but on topic.

My info source is Sustainable Pittsburgh‘s weekly email of current events.

Jacob McCrea and I talked a bit about this very topic at yesterday’s lunchtime meetup.

This nice article from the Post-Gazette about the new park in Aspinwall is germane to a lot of the themes and issues discussed above:

I rode by a lot of signs in Aspinwall yesterday and wondered what all the hub bub was about. Good stuff.

I am late to this thread… but I have been living in Millvale for 3 years and biking through it almost as long. This year I became a full time commuter by bike and have noticed a trend. Almost every close call and bicyclist vs driver incident I have had has been on my side of the river. People generally do not want me on the road. Sharrows in Millvale would maybe be helpful. . . But I dont know how many people use these roads regularly. Is this because it is not bike friendly? Or because people wisened up and moved to the city I wonder.
