January Community Meetings focused on Greenspace & Possible Dog Park

Are you interested in the possibility of creating a dog park in Stanton Heights? Or, have you wanted to improve our community parks & greenspaces while promoting positive storm water infrastructure?
25572_414898452227_176956517227_5100545_3819329_sThe January 20th meeting of the Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association will focus on possible future uses of Kelly field and the surrounding park space, including the potential for adding a dog park in the future. Specifically, we will have guests from the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy to discuss the Heth’s Run project which sits below Stanton Heights towards Morningside and Highland Park.  This coalition has received a number of grants to study and develop a plan for storm water within the watershed (Kelly Field and the surrounding green space form the upper-ridge).  They will give a summary of their work to be followed by a discussion about how residents are currently using Kelly Field and the surrounding park space and how we would like to see it used in the future, to include a possible dog park. The meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 20th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm in the library of Sunnyside Elementary school.
Additionally, there will be a Green Committee Meeting at 6 pm on Monday, January 11th at 153 Stanton Courts East.  Anyone interested in the rain garden and love your block project or discussing green infrastructure around Kelly Field should plan to attend.  For more details or to RSVP (dinner provided!) please email

Heth’s Run Bridge Construction

Screen shot 2013-08-28 at 8.33.12 PMDo you regularly drive past the zoo on Butler street? Then you may not realize it, but you are driving over a bridge! The Heth’s Run Bridge will be replaced this fall, closing a section of Butler street in the process. Construction is scheduled to begin on September 24th, with the bridge closing on November 1st. Once complete, the project will include a new entrance for the Pittsburgh Zoo, and the bridge will once again span the ravine below it.

More information, including project details, a schedule, and a map of the detour can be downloaded here.

The Tribune Review also posted this April Article on the bridge construction.
