Troy Hill Welcome Sign Update

The Troy Hill Welcome Sign, created by James Simon is close to being installed on Troy Hill Road location.

Now that PennDOT has completed it’s work on the Parking Lot on Troy Hill Road , the proper channels of paper work that are required from PennDOT have been set in motion. The next work you will notice at the Troy Hill Road Parking Lost (across from Penn Brewery) will be the construction and installation of the foundation for the Welcome Sign; hopefully this part of the project will be starting relatively soon! Once the foundation is set and cured at this location, the Mosaic Welcome Sign will then begin to be assembled and constructed. If all goes well, look for the sign to be in place sometime this summer! Check back for further updates and the progress of this project.

✿✿✿✿Lookout Street Garden Update✿✿✿✿

if you have requested a plot, now is the time to get gardening!

A BIG thank you to the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works! The construction crew put down a gravel base and moved the shed to the shady side of the garden. They also installed the split rail fence, moved 2 benches to a shady corner and moved the boxes of 4 plots! Not only all that, but they also gave us a water source! WOW! Don Donaghey and Lenore Zotter shoveled soil to refill 2 boxes.

Help is needed to move the remaining piles of soil into the empty boxes.
A combination lock will be purchased and the combination given to those who garden there. The tools now stored at the THC office will be stored in the shed.
If you have requested a plot, now is the time to get gardening! Email us at troyhillpittsburgh@gmail.com for more information or to register.
