Another one bites the dust - PDP boss departs

Ms. Geyer, head of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, (PDP), is leaving town with no major disappointments during her tenure. Accomplishments include bike racks, new trash cans and a back alley facelift.

Fifth - Forbes failures and the lack of a downtown grocery store .... ho hum.

The PDP can go away, along with its executive director.

It's time to get an executive director for the downtown partnership that'll focus on curbing the homeless problem, as well as the graffiti epidemic that's more of a nuisance than ever.

Sure you see someone picking up trash from time to time, but downtown needs a visionary that'll help increase the quality of life there, hopefully for new leadership that will also value the importance of high-end condos and other homes. That's when folks can argue for a supermarket. As it now stands, downtown could never support a quality supermarket.
