We are sad to mark the passing of Andre Fleming who died on November 2, 2015 at the age of 45. Owner of the local barbershop, East Liberty Kutz, since 2001, Andre was a fixture in the community who will be sorely missed.
Portland Oregon company, Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co., a supplier for the new Ace Hotel, is in discussion with the URA to buy the former City of Pittsburgh detective's building at 206 N. Euclid Ave.

Join us on November 17th from 6-8:30 pm for another eye-opening poverty simulation at Eastminster Church. Over the course of 2 and a half hours, you will have the opportunity to simulate what it's like to live in poverty for one month. You'll discover what it's like to deal with the stressors of everyday life when expenses are more than income.
It's interesting to look back on history through the lens of the present. We discovered the 1966 redevelopment plan for East Liberty in the archives and wanted to take a moment to share it with you. You can peruse this historical document through the link below.
Join us on Wednesday, October 14th at 1:30 pm at the corner of Shady and Penn Ave for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the East Liberty Transit Center. This newly reconstructed multimodal transit center serves over 800 daily bus arrivals at what once was the East Liberty Busway Station. Helping us reach our goal of a more bike and pedestrian friendly community, this center features a reconnected street grid and better pedestrian and bike connections.
We invite you to stop by and check out the changes with us!
