In March, the PHCA was awarded a Love Your Block grant to help improve two sets of our city steps. Love Your Block is a partnership of Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and The Home Depot Foundation to revitalize Pittsburgh, block by block. The PHCA Green Team applied for the grant to improve stairs that are crumbling and to repaint rusty multicolored railings.
On Saturday, June 15, the PHCA Green Team will be working on the city steps that connect Dobson Street to the Herron Avenue S-curve. Work will include sanding and painting the railings, putting in planter boxes, planting, and cleanup. Meet at the work site, and wear closed shoes and clothes you can get dirty.
