Project summary: Council President Kraus, with Preservation Pittsburgh, has prepared a report to nominate the Blessed Mother Statue on Wakefield Street as a historic site with historic preservation protections. He asked city officials about the process and now has a document to nominate it as a historic landmark. The report is attached below. The Council President and OPDC will be soliciting feedback from the neighborhood in the near future. If the community would like to proceed with the nomination, it would be a 6 – 8 month process.
