City making plans for Allegheny riverfront: "Toward that end, the city Urban Redevelopment Authority has hired Perkins Eastman to conduct the $350,000 master plan. It intends to hold three community meetings over the next year to gather input.Is this another hand-picked, authority, without minutes, without accountability, without democracy, without spectators?
A 10- to 12-member steering committee that includes representatives from the city, the URA, Riverlife, companies like Buncher, and community organizations will oversee the effort. It will hold its first planning meeting today. An advisory committee also will be formed.
What's the name of this advisory committee, exactly? I'd like to add it to the list.
It makes me think of the aborted Fifth & Forbes plans for downtown.
And, was there a RFP for the selection of the firm, Perkins Eastman?
Who is on the 'advisory committee?' Names please.
