Council considers park improvements
Improvements could be coming to the park area above the baseball fields in Aspinwall.
Councilman Jim Donahoe said he met with members of the Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch and they will create a wish list for improvements.
The group raised money at its National Night Out event for park improvements.
Donahoe said they have between $4,500 and $5,000 to spend.
Replacing the lights is a possibility.
“They've been there a long time,” Donahoe said. “It's not like they were defective it's just that they're old and need replaced.”
Allegheny Together part-icipants plan to meet on the third Monday of each month through December at 6 p.m. at the borough building.
The program is an economic development program in which Aspinwall was accepted into earlier this year.
The borough offices are at 217 Commercial Ave.
The borough parking lot on Freeport Road is scheduled to be paved on Oct. 29.
Councilman Joe Giuffre said the lot will be open in time for Halloween events in the borough.
A planting day in the borough is set for Nov. 10 at 8 a.m.
The event is part of a TreeVitalize grant that will plant 24 new trees in the borough. Councilman Joe Noro said the exact location for the trees has not been decided.
The day will include a picnic after the trees are planted and educational talks on tree care.
Aspinwall scarves are available for $10 at the borough building and will be on sale at Fall in the Wall on Saturday.
