Greensburg Council OKs plans for Seton Hill's new center

| Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013, 12:01 a.m.

Greensburg City Council approved plans on Monday for Seton Hill University's proposed health sciences center.

In a 5-0 vote, city council endorsed site and land development plans for the center on the Greensburg campus.

Earlier in the day, during a ground-breaking ceremony, university officials announced the center will be named for JoAnne Boyle, who served as university president for 25 years before retiring in June. She also was a former English professor.

In another matter, council promoted Patrolman Charles Irvin to sergeant. Irvin will stay on as the city's canine officer.

Council scheduled trick-or-treat night from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31. The parade will form at 5:15 p.m. at Lynch Field, city officials said.

A meeting involving the city's proposed health care district for the 5th and 6th wards will be held 7 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Greensburg Salem Middle School. The session is part of the city planning commission's regular meeting.

Luminary night will be Dec. 5, city officials said.
