A bus tour through the Northside today is to reveal neighborhood disparities to local lawmakers between Northside and the adjacent North Shore developments. Pittsburgh United Program Director Rachel Canning says public investment should be given back to the community, perhaps by North Shore developers hiring local Northside workers full time with benefits. She explains that surrounding committees should be more involved with the nearby projects, and also there should be more attention paid to Northside neighborhoods. Canning says some are in dire need of investment.
