PITTSBURGH, PA (March 18, 2015) Today, on Pittsburgh city government’s 199th birthday, Mayor William Peduto named a committee of more than 25 civic leaders to help him plan events around the 200th anniversary of the City’s incorporation.
The 200th Anniversary committee will be charged with planning celebrations around the anniversary throughout next year. A signature event will feature descendants of Ebenezer Denny, the city’s first Mayor, and as many relations as can be located every Mayor since.
Pittsburgh city government was incorporated on March 18, 1816.
“We have much to celebrate next year, from the 200th anniversary of Pittsburgh, to the 100th anniversary of the City-County Building to Pittsburgh’s ongoing growth and transformation into a cutting-edge 21st Century city,” Mayor Peduto said. “I am excited by the possibilities and want to thank all members of the anniversary committee for joining me in this effort.”
Committee members include:
The committee’s first meeting is expected to be held early next month. For more information please contact Gloria Forouzan, Office Manager, Office of Mayor William Peduto, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.255.2632.
