Taking Our South Pittsburgh Neighborhoods to the Next Level
Ever wonder how Lawrenceville went from shabby to chic? Or how Mt. Washington attracted small businesses and customers to Shiloh Street? Join us to find out! The Office of Councilwoman Rudiak is organizing a series of FREE events to help our District 4 community advocates (this means you) connect with similar organizations that have had great success in building and promoting their business districts, and attracting new residents. Take a field trip to their community for a presentation, a tour, and the opportunity to network with people who can provide inspiration and knowledge to take your community projects where you want them to go. Here are the events that we have planned so far, with more to come!
Mount Washington Community Development Corporation (MWCDC)
Thursday, July 28th, 2011 @ 6 PM- 301 Shiloh Street, Pittsburgh PA 15211
Join us for a presentation by Chris Beichner at the MWCDC headquarters on Shiloh Street! You'll learn about how their organization increased their capacity, how they brought businesses to Shiloh Street, and how they developed the beautiful Emerald View Park. After the presentation, we'll take a stroll down Shiloh St. for a short walking tour of their work. The tour will end at the popular Redbeard's Bar & Grill, where you'll have the opportunity to get to know your fellow District 4 neighbors, and exchange ideas.
