Urgent – Please attend the hearing in support of Albright on Jan. 8

UPDATE: Hearing is has been moved to 9:30 am. 



On Tuesday, January 8, 2019, there will be a hearing on the Zoning Appeal regarding the Albright Church building.

Ross Development Company is the developer who is seeking to redevelop the Albright Church property. Ross went before Pittsburgh’s Zoning Board to request approval to make changes to the property site, specifically, to be permitted to include a drive-through pattern. The Zoning Board denied Ross’s requests. Ross appealed the Zoning Board’s decision.

This hearing is the oral argument on Ross’s appeal, where lawyers representing Ross and lawyers representing members of the community that objected to Ross’s zoning requests will assert their positions in the case.

Supporters are asked to attend the hearing to demonstrate to Judge James the community’s strong support for the preservation of the Albright Church building and opposition to its demolition and replacement with a drive-through restaurant and retail space.
