"The resolution does not include the final boundary marks to note what Overton Park entity controls what slice of land there. The March 1 resolution passed by the council did exactly that (and gave two-thirds of the Greensward to the zoo). Since then, surveyors have completed their work to give legal definitions to those loose boundaries set forth in that resolution."
Time bomb that goes off when zoo parks (or attempts to park) all over the G'ward for next 3 years.
"The issue requires ample time for the public to review it and offer input". Says the guys who has had a BLANK ordinance pass 2 readings so far. There's a reason why the rules require 3 readings. It's, um, to give ample time for public review, etc...
If you're going, don't forget to wear your "Save the Greensward" shirt. If you don't know why you should, please get educated on the planned destruction of Overton Park! It's not just "about some dumb grass".
Bruce, as a fellow Pittsburgh transplant I'm a little disappointed that you left out the obligatory nod to the fact that, outside of the weather, The Burgh is a great city. Grrr. Other than that, great piece.
Best summary I've yet read. Thank you.
The players saw what "their game" is without a viable NBA last night. 5,000 fans at just $30 a pop. With King James, no less. Good luck with that.
Enough with the posturing by "leadership". Union needs to let the players vote (rumor is that the majority wants to work and get paid).
So the state will pay for MCS? Great!
