Pittsburgh to hold two public forums on 2016 budget

The City of Pittsburgh will host two Deliberative Forums where citizens can share ideas on the 2016 budget, on Wednesday in Greenfield and June 22 in South Side.

Open to each area's residents, the forums are intended to give communities an opportunity to understand the budget and add their voices to the decision-making process.

Each session will include an overview of the budgeting process, small-group discussions of budget priorities and residents’ needs, and opportunities for questions and answers with an expert panel.

Residents also will have the chance to let the city know of specific infrastructure work that they would like to see done in their neighborhoods in 2016. At the end of each session, attendees will be asked to complete a survey to add their ideas to the budgeting process.

The first session is set for Wednesday, 6-8:30 p.m., at the Healthy Active Living Center, 745 Greenfield Ave., in Greenfield. The second session will be Monday, June 22, 6-8:30 p.m. at South Side Market House, 1 Bedford Square, in South Side.

Participants are requested to register in advance by calling 412-255-4773 or through the website at http://pittsburghpa.gov/omb/capitalbudget. Walk-in registration also will be available on the day of the forum.

Both events will provide refreshments.
