Beyond Tunnel Vision: Good Jobs & Green Communities – Lessons from Kansas City

Did you see the big news? Mayor Peduto and County Executive Fitzgerald, with the support of ALCOSAN, submitted a letter to the EPA calling for agreen-first, green-preferred plan to fix our sewer system.  Their request includes  a 10-year window in which our region can improve and maintain our current system and expand our treatment plan all while investing in large-scale green infrastructure in our communities.

This new plan will ensure that ratepayers and communities benefit from this once in a lifetime public investment. Thanks to your support and hard work, this shared vision can now become a reality! Now, we have an opportunity to see how this vision can transform our region.

Join the Clean Rivers Campaign, and our co-sponsors, Phipps Conservatory and Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, for a public presentation on how a green-first, green-preferred approach worked in Kansas City and what potential these concepts have in Pittsburgh. Featuring Tim Duggan and Jason Parson, the architects of Kansas City’s plan to maximize green infrastructure, neighborhood investment, and community engagement, as well as Richard Piacentini, Director of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden.
