Larimer redevelopment takes step forward
The Pittsburgh Housing Authority's board on Thursday committed $16.5 million for a $90 million redevelopment project in Larimer.
The board upped the authority's commitment by $2 million to match a proposed $16.5 million contribution from City Council and improve the city's chances of winning a $30 million federal grant for the project.
Streets, parks, ballfields and 350 new homes would be built in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods.
