There are two important community meetings coming up in short order. The first is on Thursday, December 8th where CMU Students will present their final designs for the Western Gateway. The second meeting is on Monday, December 12th. At that meeting, drawings and plans will be presented for the proposed Penn Plaza and Enright Park redevelopment.

First, East Liberty Development, Inc. and Carnegie Mellon’s School of Architecture invite you to take part in a discussion of designs for the future of East Liberty’s western gateway area. Three different designs will be discussed for the area between East Liberty’s historic core and the neighborhoods to the west and north. This event builds on the community meeting held in October where the conversation centered on how to make better connections, have more diversity, and greater livability.
