Seeking Ideas for Dinan Park!

sunnyside playgroundWhat improvements would you like to see for the area behind Sunnyside Elementary? The Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association is collecting feedback from the community to share with Councilwoman Deb Gross’ office. We need your help to advocate for the interests of our neighborhood within the capital budget! We know it’s not easy for everyone to attend our monthly meetings, that’s why we are asking for less than 2 minutes of your time to make this a community decision by sharing your thoughts using the survey link below. Thank you in advance, and please share this survey with your neighbors!

Stanton Hops Celebration!

On Sunday September 18th from 2:00 – 7:00 pm, Roundabout Brewery (4901 Butler Street) will be releasing a limited edition of a beer that has been “wet hopped” using the hop flowers grown at our Stanton Heights rain garden.
The rain garden was initially funded through a “Love Your Block” grant program – a partnership between the City of Pittsburgh and People’s Gas to revitalize Pittsburgh- block by block. We selected the block at the intersection of Stanton & McCandless to weed, plant a rain garden, paint the stair railing, and grow hops to cover the deteriorating retaining wall. Following our work this spring, we have received two additional awards to continue work on the site!
A portion of sales from this keg will go back to our neighborhood to cover some of our expenses and fund future projects like this. We hope that this will be the first of many harvest seasons that will allow us to share in the fruits of our labor with everyone!
Please join us for what promises to be an excellent party – in addition to the beverages, there will be food and music!  There is no admission cost and friends and family are welcome.  See you on September 18th!
