What Do You Want in 2015?


Thanks to everyone who came out for our 2015 New Year’s Goals meeting. Each committee member gave a brief overview of their committees, and the attendees gave some input on goals for the new year.

We got a lot of great ideas to bring back to committee meetings, and help drive 2015. Do you have some input on what you’d like to see in 2015?

Outreach: “What can outreach do to get more people involved in 2015?”

Steptrek: “How can we increase awareness about the StepTrek event in Pittsburgh and nationally?”

Beautification: “What are you willing to do to make your neighborhood a more beautiful place?”

Zoning and City Services: “What is the number one city service you have concerns about?”

Trash sub-committee: “How can we better address public health and public safety issues that accompany illegal trash storage?”

South Side Park: “What improvement would you like to see to the South Side Park?”

We invite you to reach out to one of our committee chairs if you are interested  in participating in a committee this year. For more information on our committees, check out our Committees page: http://www.southsideslopes.org/who-are-we/committees/

    Hello. I live on the slopes on St. Joseph Way near the Monastery and for me the biggest issue I have is getting to my house everyday. My street is all gravel and is so bumpy that I have trouble getting in and out of it everyday. It really needs to be paved as well as Monastery Street, Mission and the rest of South 18th street. This would really make a huge difference in the appearance of the slopes. There are so many houses that are fixed up now that having really crappy roads just makes the whole area look crappy. I love where I live and would love to just see a few nice roads.
    There needs to be some serious landscaping done around the slopes area as well. There are way too many overgrown weeds everywhere. I would like to see more volunteer events being organized in the spring to address this as well as events to pick up the litter especially on South 18th street and Brosville. I am happy to help do anything to beautify our wonderful neighborhood. Thank you!

    Hi Karen,
    Happy to hear of your interest!
    We definitely recommend 311 for any city services issues. It helps us when we approach the city if issues have already been submitted to 311!

    Also, you’ll be happy to know that our first clean-up of the year is along Brosville Street. Hope you can join us on Saturday, April 4!
