It's Hazelwood Time!
On October 22, 2013 Pittsburgh City Council unanimously approved an $80 million TIF (Tax Increment Financing) for the former LTV coke works site in Hazelwood. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Councilman O’Connor is sponsoring a t-shirt design contest open to all Hazelwood residents. Winners will be announced at a special event in February.
