A number of people have expressed their concern regarding the former St. Agnes Church that Carlow University is planning to demolish as part of their 5th Avenue development.


Below is one actions to take if you would like:


#1) Petition to Save St. Agnes


To sign:



Carlow has released their Institutional Master Plan (IMP). The IMP is required by the City of Pittsburgh. Carlow stated that they will be approaching the Planning Commission in November regarding the plan.


We believe that options should be explored for incorporating St. Agnes Center (the former church) into Carlow's plans for their Lower Campus/5th Avenue Development.  There is an adjacent parking lot that will be part of the development and a taller building could go there.  We believe that it is possible to spare the church and use it as a historic and cultural anchor for the new development.
