The community meeting discussed the future of the Mellon's Orchard site, an area of land nestled between Euclid Ave. and Station St., which you might know as the current home of the East Liberty farmers market. The consultant group, Fu Wilmers Design, was commissioned by the Urban Redevelopment Authority to lead an engagement and planning process for this piece of land.
In 2013, East Liberty Development, Inc. (ELDI) commissioned a crime study analysis to examine the linkages between lowered crime rates, increased property values and initiatives of ELDI. Numeritics, a Pittsburgh-based consulting practice, completed the analysis and offered insights to explain ELDI's role in these developments.
