Progress in Beechview!

Beechview has recently been focused on business district revitalization. Efforts have been stalled because many properties in the business district have been owned by one person, Bernardo Katz. Four of the properties owned by Katz were mortgaged by loans through the city’s Urban Redevelopment Authority. After continued urging by the community, the URA announced at their November board meeting that they had decided to begin the steps to initiate foreclosure. The community now hopes that as the foreclosure proceedings continue, the URA will keep the community informed and involved in the progress.

The news was covered by both the Post Gazette and the Trib-Review.
