Aspinwall officials are hopeful that the PNC Bank building on Brilliant Avenue won't be empty for long if the bank moves out.

PNC Bank plans to close the Aspinwall branch in June.

Borough officials have talked with representatives from the bank to try to convince them to stay in the borough and a petition to keep the bank in town has been circulating.

Other banks in the area might be interested in taking over the building once PNC Bank decides what it wants to do with it, Councilman Joe Giuffre said.

Council President Mark Ellermeyer said he is confident that the building won't go unused.

“Something tells me that building won't be empty for long,” Ellermeyer said.

Playground equipment

Public works crews are removing old playground equipment from the Fountain Park.

Councilman Jim Donahoe said the equipment is being replaced with newer and safer equipment by the Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch organization.

They plan to make improvements to the park.

ARTEZ

Members of the Allegheny River Towns Enterprise Zone are looking for a new office space.

The organization is looking for 1,200 square feet and a $600-per-month rent.

Councilman Joseph Warren said Aspinwall would be ideal for the organization because of its location and the layout of the town.

“This is central to the ARTEZ district,” Warren said.
