Get Stuffed With Love Event For Thanksgiving

pdf icon Get-Stuffed-with-Love-Thanksgiving-2016-FINAL.pdf

Join the Rotary Clubs of Bethel-St. Clair and Northern Allegheny, Pittsburgh Police, and Holy Assumption of St. Mary Orthodox Church this Thanksgiving for the annual “Get Stuffed with Love” event. 
Help those in need in the community by cooking, assembling, and delivering food to feed the hungry on Thanksgiving Day. This year, we expect to feed approximately 3,500 residents in the City of Pittsburgh. Donations can be made up to Thanksgiving day, but donations are always accepted so even after Thanksgiving it would still go towards the program. 
In need of a meal on Thanksgiving? 
Contact your Community Resource Officer in the Zone in which you live.
Zone 4 — 412-422-6559: Officers Shannon Leshen, Tom Pauley & Dave Shifren 
Dinner requests should be made by Friday, November 18th so they have an idea on the number of requests in time for preparation and packaging of the meals.

City To Unveil New Bldg & Permitting Tool For Residents

Mayor William Peduto's administration is implementing a new mapping tool to make building permit and zoning information easy to search and view.  
Legislation is being introduced to Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday to purchase software and support services from "buildingeye," a firm that builds interactive city maps to track planning, permit, license and violation data. 
Through the data visualization tool, residents, businesses, developers and others will be able to view and search a detailed map that shows all building and zoning data happening in every neighborhood citywide. The tool is currently used by city and county governments in San Francisco, Colorado, Oregon and elsewhere.
