Last year the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy began work on a plan for green infrastructure improvements in the Four Mile Run Watershed. Aimed at reducing frequent flooding in the section of Greenfield known as the Run, this project will also restore local ecologies and improve park connectivity.In the coming months, our consultants, led by the landscape architecture firm Phronesis, will refine a concept plan through on-the-ground technical surveys, cost analysis, and continuing community engagement. We’ll also work closely with local community leaders and partners from Councilman O’Connor’s office, PWSA, the City of Pittsburgh, ALCOSAN, the URA, and other key stakeholders to ensure that we plan and design for the needs of residents of the entire watershed, which includes the neighborhoods of Greenfield, Squirrel Hill, Oakland, and Hazelwood.
Please join us for the first in a series of public community meetings to shape this green infrastructure concept plan.
At this multi-community meeting, the design team will present initial concept designs and gather input from residents. Local representatives will be present to engage in discussion and provide updates on this and related projects. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
