The first citizen input meetings on the public art and urban design components of Pittsburgh's comprehensive plan are scheduled for Tuesday.

Attendees will learn about trends and be invited to provide comment that will help guide the city's appearance.

“Every resident should feel welcome, comfortable and enthusiastic about working with us on this important effort,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said in a prepared statement.

The city will engage local, regional and national artists, facilitate care for its extensive art collection and involve artists in public space, facility and infrastructure design.

Here's a schedule of the meetings, all from 6 to 8 p.m.:

• Tuesday in Carnegie Library Brookline, 708 Brookline Blvd., and the Kaufmann Center, 1825 Centre Ave.

• Nov. 14th in the Brashear Association, 2005 Sarah St., and Schenley Ice Rink, 1 Overlook Drive

• Nov. 15th in the Kingsley Association, 6435 Frankstown Ave., and the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, 10 Children's Way, North Side.

City officials ask that interested citizens who plan to attend RSVP at www.facebook.com/planpgh or contact Morton Brown at 412-255-8996 or morton.brown@pittsburghpa.gov.

The next round of meetings will be held in March 2013, when the public will have the opportunity to comment on the work.
