PITTSBURGH ROLLS OUT THE RED CARPET FOR YOUNG WORLD LEADERS
It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since Pittsburgh hosted a safe and successful G-20 economic summit. In true Pittsburgh spirit, the community once again rallied together to roll out the red carpet for another major world stage event: the third annual One Young World Summit. For four days, more than more than 1,300 young leaders under the age of 30 from nearly 200 countries came to our City to discuss solutions for the world’s greatest problems. World leaders such as Bill Clinton and Kofi Annan addressed delegates, and forums focused on everything from education to global health.
PARTNERSHIPS FURTHER PITTSBURGH'S THIRD RENAISSANCE
Last week was an exciting week for neighborhood development. Not only is Downtown’s economic momentum picking up, but the East Liberty and Hill District communities will soon see ground break on two development projects. Through my strong partnership with the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation, we launched a new loan program that will encourage more retail ventures in historic downtown buildings. Also, the Urban Redevelopment Authority board voted on a plan that will transform the Saks building into a new parking garage with first floor retail space and more residential development.
