Residents hear benefits of Alliance, Urban Farm update — New Division 4 should be running for winter 2020 —
By Margaret L. Smykla Contributing Writer Crime statistics, urban farm news, and the Dept. of Public Works’ 4th Division site update were among the topics at the Nov. 21 general meeting of the Mt. Oliver City/St. Clair Community Group. Speakers included City Councilman Bruce Kraus and Zone 3 community relations officer Christine Luffey. In her report on the recent cleanup day and Halloween at the Park events, Jamie Pierson said 30 Pitt students helped clean up stairways, illegal dump sites, and trash in October. The first Halloween event was marred by bad weather so it drew only a few youngsters. Next, attendees were asked to complete a City of Pittsburgh confidential questionnaire to identify residents’ needs and fair housing concerns. The survey will help the city prepare its five-year consolidated plan, annual action plan, and its analysis of impediments to fair housing choice. The surveys can be obtained at the OMB-Community Development Department, 200 Ross St., Suite 201. The next speaker was Aaron Sukenik, executive director of the Hilltop Alliance. He reported that earlier this year the Hilltop urban farm, located on the former St. Clair Village site, became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit entity. Programs to assist eligible city homeowners include the Housing Opportunity Fund (HOF) which provides financial assistance for the rehabilitation and improvement of preexisting structures, such as roofs. The Hilltop Alliance is a program administrator for the HOF. There is also the Free Personal Wills Program for qualifying Hilltop homeowners, age 50 or older.
The purpose is to ensure their homes have a defined heir who will more easily be able to gain control of the properties and possibly receive financial assistance for home improvements after their loved one has died. Next, Anthony Kobak introduced himself as the new city senior planner. He previously worked in planning in Ohio, for a total of 13 years of experience in the field. In her Hilltop Urban Farm update, Ms. Pierson said 900 children were served there in 2019, and there were also 900 volunteers. The hope is to make the free children’s programs full day next year. The youth farm program engages children from the Hilltop communities in food production, farming, and teamwork while promoting the teaching of nutrition, cooking, growing food, farming principles, and more. The urban farm is also interested in farmers to garden or farm one-quarter acres next year. Some mulch is available for community projects. Ms. Pierson said she is hoping for free mulch next summer for gardeners. She also said the work is continuing on transitioning the urban farm into local hands. The property is owned by the federal government as the transfer of federal property into a public/private partnership takes time. The plan is for the Housing Authority to sell the property to the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA). Next, Officer Luffey reported on the good news that only four crimes were reported in the neighborhood from Sept. 26 to today. Those crimes were: one harassment on Ormsby Ave.; one theft from a business on Ormsby Ave.; a theft from a person on St. Joseph St.; and a search warrant on a suspected drug house on Cathedral Ave.
Regarding the latter, Officer Luffey said since July detectives have been watching a suspected drug dealer on Cathedral Ave. The police executed a search warrant and removed two digital scales, two surveillance cameras, guns, crack cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and more. To a question about abandoned cars, Mr. Kraus said “I share your frustration. Our hands are tied by state law.” For ongoing nuisance matters, he said to call 311. With 311 calls, always ask for a reference number so you can call back for an update. But if a car is parked illegally, he said to call 911 to make the police aware of it.
If you don’t want a neighbor to see an officer coming by your house following a 911 call for fear of retaliation, ask the officer to stop by later or call later. Complaints may also be reported anonymously. Mr. Kraus said the complaint he receives the most calls about is no longer parking but property-related problems, like demolitions, abandoned lots, and more. He plans on improved property management in the budget next year. Regarding the Dept. of Public Works’ (DPW) 4 th Division site redevelopment he said the new campus will be up and running for winter 2020.
DPW shut down the former Division 4 facility a few years ago when it became uninhabitable as the building was toxic and unhealthy, and no longer viable. Division 4 responsibilities have since been split between divisions 3 and 5. The proposal for the site is to return part of Mathews Ave. to two-way and add a cul-de-sac at the bottom of the hill. Only the 300 and 400 blocks of Mathews Ave. would be two-way – the rest would be one-way. The proposed cul-de-sac would reduce Mathews Ave. traffic to local traffic only; allow DPW to secure the Continued on Page 3
By Austin Vaught Contributing Writer The Carrick Community Council Board of Directors welcomed five new members following last Monday’s annual election at 25 Carrick Avenue. Tia Baker, David George Connelly, Lisa Gonzales, Julie Kuchta, and Tara Milkovich-Salazar were elected by member vote. CCC board president Sherry Brown was also re-elected to serve another term. Prior to the election, each nominee participated in a short Q&A session and spoke about their individual qualifications and goals for the organization. The first speaker was Tia Baker, who has lived in Carrick for a little over a year. Ms. Baker’s desire to serve the community is the driving factor behind her decision to run for a CCC board seat. She has several years of nonprofit experience serving on the boards of organizations such as Sister’s Place and McAuley Ministries. Ms. Baker would like to contribute to both the commercial development and capacity committees.
David George Connelly has lived in Carrick off and on for the last 25 years. He is an artist with an interest in beautification projects. He has several ideas for murals and garden installations around the community. Lisa Gonzales has lived in Carrick for three years and wants to join the CCC board to help better the community. Ms. Gonzales is interested in contributing to the CCC’s residential revitalization capacity and positive press initiatives. Sherry Brown is the current CCC board president. She comes from a family that has lived in Carrick for more than six generations. Ms. Brown appreciates Carrick’s wide range of civic organizations, and wants to devote her time to capacity development in the community. “There are all these different civic groups that we don’t really get recognized for,” Ms. Brown said. “One of my missions is to pull all those things together.” Ms. Brown is a professor at the University of Pittsburgh and teaches courses in nonprofit management and funding. Ms. Brown has
served on the boards of several nonprofits throughout western Pennsylvania. Julie Kuchta and Tara Milkovich-Salazar were not in attendance. The newly elected board members will join Ms. Brown, Linda Donahue, Donna McManus, Lauren Doyle, Andy Miscuk, and Chris Small who will all retain board seats. After the board nominee presentations, Ms. Brown asked CCC members for feedback on projects the organization could help facilitate in the new year. Improved sidewalks, a stronger business district, repurposing empty churches, and enticing a bank to open a new branch in the community were among the ideas suggested by meeting attendees. A resident asked what the plans are for further developing the Dairy District area. Ms. Donahue said future projects are on hold until more funding is secured in 2020 and that the pavilion picnic tables are currently for sale. Several announcements were also made before the Continued on Page 2

Carrick council elects board, asks for neighborhood feedback Continued from Page 1 conclusion of the meeting. The HEAR Corp, a live event production company who operates out of 25 Carrick Avenue, is seeking part-time staff for the Lumaze Christmas Lights event at 31st Street Studios in the Strip District. Interested residents can apply at https://www.lumazelights.com/pittsburghchristmas/. Ms. Brown said the CCC is also pursuing a Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) from the city, a Neighborhood Allies grant, and a Pittsburgh Foundation grant in order to secure funding and act upon the strategic plan in 2020. “One of the things we’re going to do in January is look at our strategic plan for last year and build upon that,” Ms. Brown said. “Hopefully at our next meeting, we’ll be able to discuss things that we talked about at our last board meeting that we’ll work to incorporate into our strategic plan.”
Several CCC board members have been invited to present at the Forbes Fund’s Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership Summit on December 3 at the downtown Wyndham Hotel. The board will be speaking about their experience with community capacity development. The second annual Carrick Light Up Night will take place on Friday, Dec. 6 at the Phillips Park Recreation Center, 201 Parkfield Street. The event will include choral and dance performances, re-
freshments, cookie-decorating, and the lighting of the community tree. “We’re expecting a full house,” Ms. McManus said. “We will light the tree and have a really good night of community engagement and capacity building.” Volunteers are needed for the event and will be asked to attend a brief planning meeting on the evening of December 5. Anyone who volunteers will only be asked to help out for an hour to ensure everyone has time to enjoy
the event. The next meeting of the Carrick / Overbrook Block Watch is at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 9 at 25 Carrick Avenue. The meeting will include a holiday so-
cial hour. The next CCC membership meeting will likely be in January. For more information on upcoming events, visit the CCC Facebook page or carrickpa.com
