Free home improvement workshop on Saturday, February 23

Do you want to add value to your home or storefront, but don’t know where to start?  Join Councilman Patrick Dowd and the District 7 office for the second Home Improvement Workshop, where residents can learn about property design, property renovation, City of Pittsburgh services, local neighborhood groups, and other resources for making improvements to their home or storefront.

The workshop will feature presentations and information tables on a wide range of topics.  Volunteer architects, landscape architects, and interior design consultants will be available for brief one-on-one renovation consultations facilitated through the Design Center’s Design Consults program.  RSVP is required only for the one-on-one consultations.

To get to the West Penn Wintergarden, which is in the North Tower, we suggest you enter via the Friendship Avenue entrance.  If you enter through any other door, be sure to follow the blue N arrows to the North Tower and then find your way to the first floor.  The Wintergarden is across the hall from the Friendship Cafeteria.

To register for a one-on-one consultation, please contact the District 7 office by February 19th by calling 412-255-2140 or by emailing
