Beyond Tunnel Vision: Good Jobs & Green Communities in Kansas City
Fixing our outdated sewer system and cleaning up our rivers will be the largest ever public works investment in our region. Ratepayers have been calling for a green-first plan that benefits our community, and Mayor Peduto and County Executive Fitzerald are leading the way by calling on the EPA to allow a "green-first, green preferred" plan for our region.
Thanks to your support and hard work, this shared vision can become a reality! Now, we have an opportunity to see how this vision can transform our region. Join us for a public presentation on Kansas City's green-first, green-preferred approach and what potential these concepts have in Pittsburgh. Featuring Tim Duggan and Jason Parson, the architects of the Kansas City plan along with Richard Piacentini, Director of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden, and Jessica Demoise, Project Coordinator for the Frick Environmental Center and Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy.
6 p.m. (reception at 5) at Phipps Conservatory, in the Special Events Hall (adjacent to the Tropical Forest). Click here to RSVP or for more information. Co-sponsored by the Clean Rivers Campaign, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and Phipps Conservatory.
