Feb 19: Reimagine Shenango site

Community Meeting:  Shenango Coke Works Site Reimagined

Four years ago, DTE Energy shut down its Shenango Coke Works plant, leaving behind a 50-acre brownsfield. While the site undergoes remediation, there is major concern among regional stakeholders and neighboring residents that Shenango will be replaced by yet another polluting facility. This has led to the creation of the Shenango Reimagined Advisory Council, a volunteer body consisting of local leaders and environmental groups seeking to transform the Shenango site through public input and guiding principles.

Which is why we need your help!

The Shenango Reimagined Advisory Council will host a meeting from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on February 19 at Robert Morris Sports Center on Neville Island to discuss and develop a vision for the reuse of the former Shenango Coke Works site. You’re invited to join elected officials and concerned citizens for an opportunity to influence the reuse of site for the betterment of Neville Township, neighboring boroughs, and Allegheny County. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m.

Our democracy is only as strong as our citizenry and we'd love your input so that we may transform this brownfield site into something better and safer -- for you, for our communities and for future generations!

7-9 p.m. at 7600 Grand Avenue, 15225. Hosted by ACCAN (Allegheny County Clean Air Now). Keep up-to-date and RSVP via the Facebook event. Questions? Contact Margaret Renas at mrenas@delta-institute.org
