City Council Hearing on Historic Designation for Albright Scheduled for Mon. July 25

Albright-take-action (1)Pittsburgh City Council has scheduled a public hearing on the historic designation of the Albright Church building for Monday, July 25, 2016 at 2pm in City Council Chambers.

This is the LAST opportunity for the public to speak out in support of a historic designation for the building.

Here is how you can help:

1. Attend the Public Hearing & Speak in FAVOR of the historic designation

The public hearing in front of City Council is the last step in the historic designation process. We have had a great turn out for the past hearings and need to fill every seat in the room with Albright supporters.

  • IMPORTANT: If you are able to attend and you are willing to speak – please call the City Clerk at  412-255-2138 and ask to be listed as a speaker in FAVOR of historic designation.
  • Let us know you will attend and request a t-shirt here.

2. Contact your City Council Representative

Take a moment to send an email to your City Council representative and ask them to support the historic designation for the Albright Church Building. Please cc: so we can print a copy to bring to the hearing.
