It has been a long journey leading up to this moment in Pittsburgh history, as Council prepares to cast its vote on the fate of the Civic Arena. The final vote is scheduled to happen tomorrow, June 28, 2011. Therefore, I wanted to provide you with my perspective on the issue, why I believe removal of the arena will lead to the economic rejuvenation of a historical neighborhood, and to clarify the factors that Council must consider in making our historical decision.
Please find my view of the issue, here.
