Meeting set to discuss proposed pedestrian/bike trail from Verona to Plum

Michael DiVittorio

Officials from four Allegheny County communities will meet in Penn Hills to discuss a proposed pedestrian/bicycle trail.

The public’s invited to participate in the discussion 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the municipal building, 102 Duff Road.

The plan is to make a trail from Arch Street in Verona, running through Oakmont and Penn Hills along Plum Creek, and finishing at Boyce Park in Plum.

A feasibility study is in progress and three possible routes will be revealed at the meeting.

Committee member Jerry Kenna, Verona’s borough manager, said they hope to acquire public input and determine the committee’s next course of action.

The study’s being paid for through a $40,000 grant from the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County’s Active Allegheny Grant Program in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department and the Richard King Mellon Foundation.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
