Tonight: Panel to discuss public involvement in transit planning

Posted By on Thu, Apr 17, 2014 at 11:04 AM

Bricolage Production Company is kicking off its "Fifth Wall" series tonight with a panel discussion on public involvement in transit planning across the county.

Its panelists include Bonnie Young-Laing (Co-Director of Hill District Consensus Group) and Ben Samson, the map guru who created this incredibly sexy Pittsburgh transit map. (The discussion will be moderated by City Paper's own Chris Potter).

The discussion will focus on "how (or if) public input should be included in planning for public transit," according to Bricolage's website.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Blakey Program Center Multipurpose Room, 1908 Wylie Avenue, 2nd Floor.

A Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group press release can be found after the jump.

Bricolage's Fifth Wall series seeks to break down the barriers between scripted storytelling and current events in the world at large.

The 2014 Fifth Wall Series continues with a panel discussion on public transit in Allegheny County. Specifically, how (or if) public input should be included in planning for public transit. Panelists include:

Bonnie Young-Laing - Hill District Consensus Group
Ben Samson - Architectural Designer
Tom Conroy - Amalgamated Transit Union
Grant Ervin - City of Pittsburgh
Moderated by Chris Potter - Pittsburgh City Paper
