A new Italian restaurant is planned for the former Luma site on Brilliant Ave. in Aspinwall.

Aspinwall officials approved a liquor-license transfer for a proposed Italian restaurant on Brilliant Avenue.

The license would transfer from Franco's Restaurant in Harmar Township to the site of the former Luma Restaurant at 6 Brilliant Ave.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board also must approve the transfer before alcohol could be sold at the location.

TreeVitalize

Aspinwall's Shade Tree Commission hopes to receive another round of trees from the TreeVitalize grant program.

Councilwoman Ann Pawlikowski said this year's application seeks money to plant trees along Freeport Road that would replace those removed last year because they were infested by the emerald ash borer. Trees would also be planted in Aspinwall Riverfront Park and near the ball fields.

The borough has received trees the last two years through the program.

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled for April 2 at 7 p.m. at the borough building on Commercial Avenue.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
