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