National Night Out - 5XNW
July 27, 2015 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #1086811
Bike Tour Route with YayBikes! is set!
We are highlighting two(2) green spaces (parks) under development – and one of the project sponsors (food!) Press Grill as we ride around the neighborhood!
Initial surveys of the area rated green space as the #1 “ask” so we’ve always tried to incorporate this aspect into all of our developments which have fallen under zoning review – but these are the first two opportunities we’ve had to have dedicated green space (not metro parks) underway!
Here more about the details at our National Night Out event – starting at 630pm with local speakers highlighting the green space – followed by the YayBikes! tour of 5XNW starting at 730p – out in front of the church! Meet us at 1150 W. Fifth Ave. inside or out!August 3, 2015 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1087811
Tomorrow is the day!
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Should be a great event!
Try to park on the street & save the “up close” parking for the vendors, the First Responders (we have a fire truck coming) and the other church group that will be there that night!August 5, 2015 9:40 am at 9:40 am #1087994
So glad to see 5XNW being proactive! Highly underrated area.
I just want to throw this out there just in case you have any say in this kind of matter: I think 5th Avenue is a PRIME contender for road diet. Would love to see 5th become less car-oriented and even more walk-able and bike friendly. That stretch with four lanes is so totally unnecessary and terrifying for drivers as well as bikers.
Also, any big plans for the old Giant Eagle? I understand (unless I’m mistaken) that GE still owns the lease. That spot is prime for mixed use and walking-friendly development.
Lots and lots of potential on 5th. I hope things come together to make an even more awesome neighborhood.
Looking forward to tomorrow. Take care!
Edit: Oh no! I missed the event!! I can’t believe it…..thought that post was posted today and not on the 3rd :(
