City Council Holds Public Hearing

Pittsburgh City Council held a public hearing to discuss the rezoning of a 10-acre parcel of land in the Ridgemont section of the city. The rezoning would clear the way for the development of a condominium and townhouse community. The proposed development would be called City Vista at Parkway and would be partly in Green Tree and the city. The hearing heard from many residents who are not pleased with the proposal. They feel the development would add more unnecessary traffic to an area they say can not handle any more cars and would endanger the young children who play in the streets. The matter is to be voted on in city council within a week but will most likely be postponed until a city council representative is selected for the district. Former council member Dan Deasy won a State House of Representatives seat in the November Election. The special election for his former district is scheduled for next Tuesday.
