The final public meetings for OPENSPACEPGH — the city's planning effort for open space, parks and recreation — will take place over the next two weeks. A public comment period will also open tomorrow and last until June 7.
OpenSpacePGH is a component of the city's comprehensive plan, PLANPGH, and will help guide city development by determining which areas are best left protected as open space.
The meetings are free and open to the public and will educate residents on the findings of the draft plan — which can be found here or at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh locations. Residents can also comment on the plan online. The city is also encouraging residents to share ideas about priorities for open space programs in various neighborhoods.
OpenSpacePGH meetings will take place on the following dates and locations:
Tues., May 7: 6 to 8 p.m., Kaufman Center, 1825 Centre Ave., Hill District
Wed., May 8: 6 to 8 p.m., Kingsley Center, 6435 Frankstown Road, Larimer
Thurs., May 9: 6 to 8 p.m., Knoxville Elder Ado, 320 Brownsville Road, Knoxville
