Over the past ten months, thousands of North Side residents have participated in a community-driven initiative to improve the quality of life in all 18 neighborhoods of the North Side. Residents and community members have been defining what’s working and what’s needed, and shared strategies that will make a difference now and for years to come.
As a result, over the next 10 to 20 years, Pittsburgh’s Buhl Foundation plans to spend $40 to $60 million dollars revitalizing the North Side, hoping to make it a place where residents feel proud.
As part of the YMCA Lecture Series, Vice President of The Buhl Foundation, Diana Angela Bucco, will cover the highlights from the One Northside Community Census and the Strategy Teams’ work around Education, Employment and Quality of Place.
Ms. Bucco has been recognized throughout her career for her accomplishments including the Spirit of Amelia Earhart Award by Zonta Club of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Magazine’s 40 under 40, and was the recipient of a German Marshall Fellowship. She was also recognized by the state as one of the top ten of the GenX generation.
The lecture will be held on Wednesday, January 21, at 7:15 pm, at the Allegheny YMCA (600 West North Avenue). This lecture is free, but donations are welcome.
