Terry Ford Aiello

Noteworthy: Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl declared Nov. 8 as Terry Ford Aiello Day for her efforts to improve the quality of life in Bloomfield.

Age: 57

Residence: Bloomfield

Family: Husband, David, and son, Andre, 35.

Occupation: Mainstreet manager for the Bloomfield Development Corp. for three years and a freelance graphic designer for more than 20 years.

Background: For two years, Aiello has been volunteer coordinator for Redd Ups — street-litter cleanups — and Green Ups, efforts to expand and maintain green spaces through weeding, planting and applying mulch. She created Live on Liberty, a summer music series in which bands perform outside of Bloomfield restaurants on Liberty Avenue to attract visitors to businesses. Aiello led the creation of the Bloomfield Urban Thicket to place 1,000 plants at the base of the Bloomfield Bridge, improving its appearance and reducing flooding, she said.

Quote: “My hope is that (younger families) continue to get involved and continue to come in and just to re-create that close-knit neighborhood that I think Bloomfield is known for.”
