Allegheny County Tours Edgewood

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald has been hitting the road to tour municipalities, and Edgewood was pleased to host the County in its first round of tours. On July 31st, Edgewood Borough Council led the County Executive and County staff members through the Borough. Council highlighted some of the things that make Edgewood a unique place to live and work, and showed off projects we are particularly proud of, including the Edgewood Train Station, green infrastructure rain gardens, and the newly installed Dog Run at Dickson Park. Council discussed Edgewood history, current intermunicipal cooperation with our neighbors, the active civic groups that call Edgewood home, and highlighted the work of Borough volunteers. All in attendance identified areas where future cooperation with the County is needed, particularly in reference to the Port Authority. Edgewood Council discussed how current bus stops could be updated, and looked at ways to improve access to public transportation.

Edgewood Borough Council would like to thank Executive Fitzgerald for stopping to see all that Edgewood has to offer! We are eager to continue our excellent working relationship with the County in order to better serve our residents.
