Mayor Luke Ravenstahl today called on citizens to help complete the City's inventory of war monuments and memorials. In addition to the City’s current list of over 90 war monuments, the City's Department of Public Works and City Planning is coordinating the effort by asking community members to help in identifying other neighborhood memorials by complete a War Monument Identification form located at http://www.pittsburghpa.gov/dcp/warmonuments/.
Once information is received from the public, location and condition data will be integrated into a database to create the complete inventory. Then, City staff will perform on-site condition evaluations of each piece and a professional conservator will provide a long-term maintenance plan for these pieces.
This Citywide project has been created and will be completed in collaboration with the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, the Senator John Heinz History Center, the Northside Leadership Conference and the help of the Veterans and community organizations throughout the City.
