Green Forum

3 posts in this topic

This is a worthwhile event for anyone to attend to get some ideas on how to make this city even better. I would highly recommend attending...

A "green" forum to build strategies for reuse of vacant land in the city is scheduled for Thursday and Friday at the Pittsburgh Project, 2801 N. Charles St., North Side.

An initiative of the Urban Ecology Collaborative and the mayor's Green Vacant Land Working Group, the forum seeks public input the first day and an audience with neighborhood advocates, developers and public-policy professionals the second.

The public session will be Thursday from 4 to 9:30 p.m. The Friday session runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Representatives of groups in Baltimore and Philadelphia that have created public-private greening projects are expected to attend.

There is no cost to participants. PNC Bank and the Sprout Fund are the major underwriters.

The result of the forum will be a report compiled by a team from the Heinz School of Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University and presented to the mayor's office in December.

Really you aren't supposed to post ads here, and this is kind of on the line for me. But since it might be of interest to some people here, I am going to leave it up.

Continuing the trend of Pittsburgh as a focal point of "Green" development, the Urban Land Institute is holding a mini conference on the topic here (at the Westin) in April.
