Regional Planning Panel To Meet

At 6:30 tonight at the New Hazlett Theater City Live will present a regional visioning panel called Your Region Your Vision. The panel will discuss the challenges that face the Pittsburgh region in the next 40 years. The panel is a part of a larger regional visioning project. Some members of the panel include the Mayor of Turin, Italy - Valentino Castellani - and Maureen McAvey the Executive Vice President of initiative for the Urban Land Institute. McAvey says that population growth, especially in urban centers, is the biggest issue facing cities across the country. She says that in order to succeed in the future regions like Pittsburgh must find ways to collaborate with neighboring municipalities and the county. She said governmental merger may not be needed if the regional government can find effective ways to work together.
