2nd Community Planning Meeting

We had a great turn out at Community Meeting #2.  The group was split into four working groups and each was charged with designing a tour route, choosing 4-6 homes they wanted to see as stops on the tour.

From our first community meeting, we identified 24 properties for our second round of discussions

Neighbors discussed the pros and cons of each home as a possible stop on the tour

They shared their stories of the homes and looked at tour routes that might include interesting locations along the walking route from one stop to the next

They measured the distance between each stop with walking distance/time tape measures that we created

They cut out the homes to paste on the map to indicate what their tour route looked like

Each group’s tour was unique as they started to come together

But there were homes that seemed to end up as “must see” homes, appearing in more than one of the group’s final routes

Each described why they had designed the tour route and how they chose the final homes for each stop on their tour

Some mentioned that even if some houses were not actually on the tour, the route could be designed to allow participants to walk by some of the houses anyways

Tour routes included Wilkinsburg places of interest to help enrich the tour route

A long day’s work but we got a lot accomplished!
