Allegheny County will seek state money for four developments planned or under way and will apply for funds for a fifth development.

At its meeting Friday, the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County approved applying for funds under the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program — called RACP — for $4 million for the $450 million Newbury mixed-use development in South Fayette; for $1.5 million each for the Industrial Scientific Global headquarters development in Robinson and the Westpointe Corporate Center Four office building in Moon; and for $500,000 for the Nichol Avenue Brownfield-Cooperation project by Brook Trout in Stowe Township.

The state has approved the money but requires applications to release it.

A fifth project involves seeking $3 million for infrastructure improvements to the former Sports Legacy 78-acre site called the Montour Junction property, where perhaps 11 sports fields will be developed.

Regarding the sports field, the board accepted a $1 million agreement with the Beadling Soccer Association to construct a synthetic soccer field on the site at Montour Junction — which straddles Moon, Coraopolis and Robinson. As part of the agreement, Beadling would designate the dates and times for use of the field to avoid conflicts with other soccer clubs. The county aims to build three or four synthetic soccer fields there this year.
