Olivia commented on City Steps

Anthony Monahan Katie Walsh  Hello, I think reinventing the city steps is an excellent idea. There are a set of stairs in Southside that have a mosaic art installation, which draw a number of people. Partnering with Pittsburgh artists and student artists (perhaps for an installation that do not require a lot of upkeep, or even permanent physical art alongside the stairs) could be an exciting method of community engagement. I agree with Mitch Turck that they are not ideal for a mode of transportation, yet would renovate and beautify the area for both mom's with strollers and the older population who may not be able to physically ascend the stairs. Furthermore, if some connect with trails and parks in the low-income neighborhoods it could further tourism to these spaces and tell the story of the community.
