Sheraden Park Turns 100 Today

Today is the 100th anniversary of Sheraden Park! Check out this post by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy noting the milestone of this important neighborhood asset.

Final Push for Sheraden Resident Survey

      Marilyn Gerthoffer, President of the Sheraden Community Council, recently volunteered over 3 hours to help prepare 160 letters to randomly selected residents who have yet to complete the Sheraden Resident Survey. The mailing, sent out yesterday, includes copies of the survey and a self-addressed stamped envelope so that they can be returned by the February 7th deadline.
       The surveys are part of the ongoing outreach to residents concerning the revitalization efforts occurring in the neighborhood. To date, over 230 households have participated with a number of residents volunteering a significant amount of time to the project. The overall results, including various property related data collected from over 1,000 parcels, including condition and vacancy, will be presented in a series of upcoming community meetings. The dates of these meetings will be announced in the near future.
