Residents, HACP express concerns about _ future of public housing families, pr9perty Relocation process moving slowly

Sites could become corn fields

By Rush David Repqrter Intern Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh wants to make the process of relocation for residents of Arlington Heights and Saint Clair Village as painless as possible, but it's not always succeeding, according to the messages delivered by two speakers at the South Side Local Development Company's first Neighborhood Assistance Program town meeting July 15 at the Brashear Association. Scott Smith, a relocation specialist for the housing authoTity, said the agency will not act impersonally despite pressure from the U. S. Congress, which wants "things run like a business, very efficiently." He addressed the concerns ofa small group of Arlington Heights residents who have not thus far participated in the relocation project. He insist~d the agency will keep trying to work with them. "We will not be evicting people," he promised. In fact, Smith gave his business card to dissatisfied residents and told them, "Call me tomorrow and we'll find out what the problem is and we'll fix it." Smith also briefly discussed possible plans for Saint Clair Village. Nothing specific has been decided, he said, but baseball fields, a walking path, or gates for the community have been discussed. Gating a community, Smith said, can greatly reduce unnecessary traffic through the area. Whatever the Housing Authority decides to build, he said, "Saint Clair's going to be a much better community when we're done." (Continued on Page 2)

By Jackie Day Contributing Writer Now that plans to demolish two-thirds of the public housing in Arlington Heights and Saint Clair Village are well underway, there is curiosity and concern for future development on the notyet-vacant sites. "My plans for that site right now are to plant com," Chris Shea, special project director for the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh said in a phone interview. The housing authority owns the property, and has its hands full with a number of city projects, according to Shea, who stressed the passage of time as a crucial factor in making the best possibilities clear for future development. "The community must discuss their needs first and speak [with] one voice," he said. "This process can take a couple of years." The process has already begun through the South Siqe Local Development Company's Neighborhood Assistance Program, a ten-year multi-million dollar total community development funded by PNC Bank in exchange for state Comprehensive Services Program tax credits. The first NAP public meeting, last Thursday at Brashear Center on South Side, encouraged public housing residents to share their ideas on future site development. "We need your help in making Saint Clair village a viable community," said Karen Cellars, president of the Saint Clair Tenants Council. "My fear is ifwe don't [getthat help], we won't have a community." The housing authority shares this fear, according to Shea. It is (Continued on Page 2)

Now that Danny Perella has joined his mother, Diane, in the operation of Josie's Restaurant in Mount Oliver, the family is celebrating its third generation in the restaurant business. Josie's recently took a bronze medal in the 'Taste of Pittsburgh... Pasta' contest sponsored by the leukemia Society. ,

discount that becomes effective in January of Year 2000 Mount Oliver residents ages 62 and older who qualify will receive a $20 discount on their twice-a-year, $60 garbage collection assessments, beginning in the year 2000, thanks to action borough council took last week. Although the 33 1/3% discount won't apply until the January 2000 assessments, tax officer Jan Mudron urged seniors to· apply beginning this week. Early applications will give her staff time to verify eligibility and add the senior data to the borough's computer system, she indicated. Along with the age requirement, seniors who are eligible must own and live in the single unit home for which the discount is requested. They must have an annual combined family income of no more than $15,000. Income must be documented at time

of application. There are also guidelines for terminating the discount. Councilman Bill Mudron, who chairs the council's committee that includes garbage collection, urged all those who think they may be eligible to apply at once. "Submitting an application two days before or two days after the Jan. I notices go out will be too late," he said. Seniors who think they may be eligible should pick up the simple, one page application forro at the borough building beginning this week, and return it as soon as possible. "Seniors are usually the first to pay [borough assessments]. They're standing at the [office door] .•We want to do something to help them," said council President Marty Palma.

By Jackie Day Contributing Writer Sauteing their finest pasta selections, 12 Pittsburgh restaurants were invited to compete in the "Taste of Pittsburgh ... Pasta" at USX Towers June 22, including Bruschetta 's, Top of the Triangle--and Josie's 'home cooking' Restaurant in Mount Oliver-that walked away with a bronze award for their Fettuccini Alfredo entry. "When they called to invite us I thought gosh, all these big fancy places," laughed Josie's owner Diane Perella, "I was reluctant, very reluctant.'-' Having frequented the restaurant himself and remarked on the quality of food, the coordinator of the contest encouraged her to accept, recalls Perella. Josie's team of cooks collaborated: Tom Bukauskas, Scott Firestone, Betsy Harkins and Perella, who finally decided upon (Continued on Page 5)

a willing participant in going along with community plans in hopes of making Saint Clair and Arlington Heights viable, and feels efforts of Cellars and other public housing residents can help make that happen. Shea emphasized that the focus is more on existi ng neighborhood plans, rather than development of"some big chunk of vacant land." "We have our work cut out for us," he said, "bu~re are co mpetent people like the SSL DC working with the community ."

cial issues and other dynamics of change that have occurred over the past 50 years, which are relevant to -discerning the best course of action here, according to Shea. "Pittsburgh has lost 50 percent of its population since World War II ; we are now down to $350,000 people," he said . "The need for housing is different now." Cramped living, stair climbing and high density make for poor living conditions within public housing communities, everyone wants townhouses, he indicated. Arlington Heights will become a community of all apartments, will retain the lower section units where HACP recently invested in modernizati on . Taking down the multilevel apartment buildings in Saint Clair will result in an appealing interspersed townhouse nei g hborhood . "We can be a se lf-s ustaining communit y ," sai d Cellars, smiling.

The authority's allocation of money and resources to residents is inconsistent as well, she said, and should be based on a unit's size and a resident's needs. The town meeting also featured a report from the South Consortium of social service providers on service delivery. Lola O'Dea, director ofs~rv!ces for the Brashear Assoc1at1on, explained that ~rganizati~ns such as the housing authority, the welfare office and the Pittsburgh Board of Education all operate separately , creating plans to affect Pittsburgh which [can] end up cramming people in public housing.

Garbage collection, fees come •to forefront during council session

Besides the new $20 senior citizen garbage discount Mount Oliver Borough Council adopted last week, other garbage collection-related matters occupied much of council ' s July 19 meeting .. With more than $70,000 in delinquent fees sti II outstanding, borough solicito ~ Jim Perich introduced a 15-page resolution providing new rules and regulations concerning rubbish, refuse and garbage collection and storage. Tax officer Jan Mudron drafted the document, with the approval of solicitor

Jim Perich. "This will provide clear and simple guidelines for garbage pick-up and responsibility," said Perich .

[The South Pittsburgh Reporter will provide a detailed description of the new regulations next week--Editorj

Also at last week's meeting, council members complained about residents who continue to put garbage at the curb too early, sometimes days too early, for the weekly collections on Monday. Some people apparently do



not realize that the entire borough now has collections on Monday and those who formerly had Friday pickups are still putting out their garbage Thursday nights, according to observations by Councilwoman Jean Miller and others. Assistant ordinance officer John Wagner will notify the worst offenders first. "We' ll give them two warnings, then they will be cited," said council President Marty Palma., who instructed police chief Jack Hindmarch to have his officers notify offenders, as well. There was considerable confusion over the July 4 collection date. For most Monday holidays, garbage is collected on Tuesdays if the contractor is off for the holiday. But the hauler worked Monday, July 5, when some other businesses were closed. Borough residents who did not see the holiday collection notice on the borough's public information cable television channel 7 missed the collection, but put refuse on the curb Monday night anyway, causing it to stay out in the hot weather. In the future, police will notify those who don't observe the proper collection date. In another garbage-related

ticket]," Bendowski said about some officers. There was, however, one officer who did write tickets. When he reported this to another police officer, "He told me to mind my own business, [that] it's his discretion." Another officer told Bendowski that he didn't need to write a ticket for the infraction. Rich and Bendowski said they believed the problems would grow worse if the Back Street Tavern was re-opened. Borough Police Chief Jack Hindmarch said he was not aware of the inconsistencies. He said he needs to know the days and times of the incidents and the names of the officers who aren ' t handing out tickets. About the zoning board hearing, borough council president Martin Palma said he had intended to be there to object to the re-opening of the bar, but he was out of town. Council member Don Cornelius was there, but at the he left, he thought the zoning board would not approve it. "I thought the place was better off without the Back Street Tavern," Palma said. "We don ' t need another one." He also said nobody could justify leaving the bar open for economic development reasons. The bar first opened as Dorothy's Bar in 1978 1:ut reopened as the Back Street Tavern in 1984. It re-opened again

cording to research by borough staff, the Back Street Tavern still has a liquor license but hasn 't paid the mercantile tax since 1994 or the business privilege tax, which was instituted in 1997. Palma said council had not officially been notified of the zoning board's decision, but once it was, an appeal would be sent to the Court of Common Pleas within 30 days. "Whether we win or lose, we will be taking an appeal," he said. Assistant Ordinance Officer John Wagner planned to take pictures of the bar to show that the property is in disrepair. He also assured Bendowski that his complaints would be handled. "It's water over the dam here, but you're entitled to the protection of Mount Oliver Borough," Palma said. "If we're going to open a bar, we'll definitely [issue] parking permits."

(Conlinuedfrom Page I) the recipe of their newest cook, Bukaus°kas, to take the stage. Performing again, Josie's will have a booth at the Mount Oliver Community days, offering their everyday homemade winners: pierogies, huluski (cabbage and noodles), meatballs, hot sausage and more. "Everything is homemade. Even the mashed potatoes, and they are so good," boasted Perella. "We sell so much mashed potatoes and liver here." The majority of Josie's clientele are senior citizens. Most are Mount Oliver residents and regulars who rely on the restaurant for more than mashed potatoes. · "Some people eat three meals a day here," said the owner. ' But it was their famous $2 breakfast specials that got people coming back, recalls Perella. "I had to do something to get people to know us," she said. "Mount Oliver business district isn't what it used to be. It's gone down, and I'm looking for the day when it comes back." Perella reflected on the time of Sears and Fashion Hosiery stores, multiple bakeries, a theatre, clothiers and to when her mother owned Josephine's Restaurant on Amanda Street, where Diane, her younger brother and mother also lived. "I worked with my mom from age 14," she said. "I walked in one day after school and the place was packed. She handed me a note pad and pencil and put me out on the floor to take orders." Diane has been in the restaurant business ever since. Fifteen - years of catering knowledge acquired from the Greentree Marriott led her into a six-year-catering business of her own through the Mount Oliver VFW, thus delivering her back one block away from where she began, establishing a restaurant of her own. ''This has always been a dream of mine," she said. "I named [the restaurant] after my mom. Everyone in Mount Oliver called her 'Josie' ." · In keeping with family tradition, Diane's youngest son Danny works every day, seven days a week, for the family business. Husband Carmen, retired from J&L, keeps busy washing dishes and performing other necessary duties. Diane continues to cook, but counts on the reliable team of her staff more than ever since recuperating from a recent illness. The catering business keeps them cooking: filling wedding orders,

The "J Team" from Josie's Restaurant in Mount Oliver out cooked larger Pittsburgh restaurants to take a bronze tMdal in the leukemia Society's "Taste of Pittsburgh ... Pasta" contest last month. The Team used chef Tom Bukauskas' recipe for fettuccini Alfredo to take the prize. Team tMmbers are, from left, Bukauskas, Jennifer Huber and Dan Perella, son ofJosie's owner, Diane Perella. for meetings, birthdays and their more recent endeavor, tail-gate parties at Three-Rivers Stadium. After entertaining on his own for 12 years, one customer sought Josie's catering for his tail-gate event: ribs, hot sausage, meatballs, tossed salad and fresh fruit. "He and his wife used to do the cooking," said Perella, "now they have me doing it." Diane works to accommodate everyone, she says. Wedding showers, chamber of commerce and Kiwanis meeting attendees, Pennsylvania Umpires Association members, family gatherings or large groups can dine in the back partitioned section. Front tables are available for regular clientele, and for Diane hersdf, who usually can be found in her own customary spot nearest the kitchen. "I think "they like seeing me here and talking," she said. "I love the customers, they keep me here."

Flag will fly in borough office in memory ofFred Omer, long time borough engineer At the close of the July Mount Oliver Borough Council meeting, ·Ruthann Omer, borough engineer, presented council with an American flag that had been draped on the casket of her father, Fred Omer, who died the week before the meeting. Ms. Omer said the firm her father started, Gateway Engineers, had been Mount Oliver's designated engineering consultant since September of 1984. At the time, the elder Omer turned over the responsibility for managing the borough 's engineering affairs to her. "When he saw how much fun I was having here, he wanted it back, but I wouldn 't give it to him," Ms. Omer joked, then indicated her father always maintained an interest in the affairs of Mount Oliver. She said she frequently diseussed \1111'

borough projects with him. Before he became ill with cancer, Fred Omer sometimes visited projects, particularly road .I ,projects, underway in the borough to offer .suggestions and r.ecommendations. His daughter always referred to her father as "Mr. Omer" when relaying those suggestions to borough council. Because of his interest that lasted through his lengthy illness and almost until his death, she said her family wanted the borough to have the flag awarded posthumously to her father, who was a veteran. She indicated the family wanted the flag to be hung in the council chambers, and officials agreed . Out of respect, friendship and affection for Fred Omer, borough council adjourned their July 19 meeting in his memory.

Mount Oliver borough officials still are reluctant to give out any specific details about several economic development projects pending in the borough, although they are reporting "progress" on several proposals. At the latest borough council meeting, it was engineer Ruthann Omer who provided the still-sketchy details. Ms. Omer said she has been talking with representatives from businesses and churches along an unspecified portion of Browns vi lie road, to "discuss their concerns and problems" with possible development, and to attempt to get some financial aid for those that have sewer problems that could be increased by development. "We welcome any development that is done properly," she said, "because they [developers] leave and leave it with us. We want to make sure it's done properly [in the first place]." The engineer also commented briefly on two other specific developments. Of the apartment building for elderly residents planned for the former Tubby 's Field on Ormsby Avenue, she said she's now working on sewer taps. Concerning an on-again, off-again, on-again plan for a mega drugstore on the site of the Mount Oliver Foodland on Arlington A venue, she said the two companies are back in negotiations. Earlier this year, Rite Aid was identified as the firm wanting the site, but early negotiations between the property owner and potential purchaser fell through. At last Tuesday 's meeting, Ms. Omer would say only that the possibility for a drug store on the property is moving forward , without identifying the company involved. "Whether it's the same company or not, they must start over and come to the planning commission and council," she said, and repeated her caution about doing development in the right way . In another part of her report, the engineer asked for, and approved, co uncil 's approval to submit a request to the county for payment of more than $29,000 to El Grande Industries for the fourth and final phase of improvements to Giffin, Rustic, Onyx and Transverse aven ues in the 1999 road program. The approval, which is subject to receiving and verification of a performance bond by the engineer and solicitor James Perich , is ne cessa ry even though the contractor won't receive payment for severa l months. "It takes six to eight months to get through the cou nty pro-· cess," she said. Turning to the year 2000 road program, the engineer reminded counci l s h e already has a $100,000 state grant for next year's work, but is applying for a $218,000 county grant. Allegheny County requires 60-40 matching money for such fund-

ing, and she plans to use the state money she· has for that match. "I'm hoping to use the state money to leverage the county funds," she said. Toward that end, solicitor Jim Perich introduced a resolution that will serve as a formal request for funding from the county's Department of Economic Development. Ms.Omerisalsoapplyingfor county matching funds for two other borough projects: $37,000 for the Walter Street sewer project and and another S 150,000 for the continuing

conversion of the former swimming pool property on Ormsby Avenue to active recreational use. Concerning another sewer project, the engineer said she's had a few reports of flooding in the Anthony Street watershed, a situation that has plagued residents and the borough alike for many years . "The only way we'll get funding [to completely alleviate the flooding] is through [money allocated by] a federal budget line item," she said, adding she plans to attempt to get the project in the federal budget.
