Community and civic leaders gathered at Freedom Corner in the Hill District today to sign a first-of-its-kind community benefits agreement. The agreement took over a year to reach, and all involved agreed that reaching the deal took a considerable amount of effort. The deal includes the formation of a master development plan for the Hill District, the creation of a community multi-purpose center, 1 million dollars from the URA and the Penguins for a grocery store, and first crack at family-sustaining jobs that will be made available as a result of the arena construction.
