The second meeting of the Alle-Kiski Planning District was held on July 29, 2019, at Allegheny Township. Click here to listen to Deputy Director Brian Lawrence review the Alle-Kiski existing conditions. report. This information is important for officials in the Alle-Kiski region so that they can inform the Westmoreland County Planning Department of their concerns and priorities in regards to land use. Land use is inextricably intertwined with transportation, and the County needs municipal input to represent Alle-Kiski communities at the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission. By having a good sense of the places the region wants to preserve, enhance, or transform, efficient use of funding and overall stronger decisions can be made. At the end of the evening, the group was assigned "homework." Where are those places to preserve, enhance, or transform? What are those special places in the Alle-Kiski region? Where would you take an out-of-town guest? In this exercise, we focus on places, not just ideas! Bring your list of places to the next meeting, August 26, in New Kensington.
