Say No To Buncher Company's Plans For Private Drives Along Allegheny River

It's bad enough we've waited this long for the possibility of decent river access in the Strip and Lawrenceville, now we have this...

Check out the Pittsburgh Post Gazette's article on the possibility of restricted river access and private drives via the Buncher Company along the Allegheny River in the Strip District.

And the URA rears it's head...

In a statement, the URA defended the Buncher plan, noting that its Riverfront Landing development would provide far more access to the river than now is available in the Strip District. That's true, but cordoning off any portions of the new neighborhood is unacceptable, especially considering the tax incentives that are being proposed to assist the developers.

Make yourself heard ASAP!
