Centennial parade Saturday
A parade Saturday will celebrate the municipality's 100th birthday.
Stepping off at 3 p.m. on Washington Road near Cochran Road, the two-hour parade will include 70 groups and hundreds of participants and each district school will have its own float.
An honor guard from Medical Rescue Team South will lead the parade, which will end at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery.
After the parade disbands, the community will host a block party in Uptown, with music by Uptown Rhythm and Brass, activities and roaming performers.
The yearlong centennial celebration has included activities for all ages: a champagne toast, birthday cake and special commission meeting on the anniversary date in February; an expanded Fourth of July fireworks show; commemorative issues of Mt. Lebanon Magazine; and historic videos from the public information office.
Input sought for municipal plan
The team that will shape the municipality's comprehensive plan - a document that will guide decisions regarding land use and related issues for the next decade - continues to solicit resident input.
The theme of the plan is Elevate Mt. Lebanon.
Municipal representatives have been at community events, distributing literature and asking people to visit www.mtlebanon.org for information or www.facebook.com/ElevateMtLebanon to comment.
In addition, planners have invited residents to submit photos of things they like about the community -- or things they would like to see changed -- to email@example.com.
A survey on the subject is online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/mtlaugustsurvey.
A print version is available at the customer service center in the municipal building.
Residents also may attend a 9 a.m. to noon meeting Sept. 15 at Mt. Lebanon Public Library to meet the planning team and review submitted photos.
Details: municipal planner Keith McGill, firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-343-3684.
Council grants access for pipeline
Council has entered into an agreement with M3 Appalachia Gathering for access to build a Marcellus Shale natural gas pipeline beneath Railroad Street.
The 6-1 vote came during an Aug. 27 council meeting. Frank Arcuri dissented.
The agreement with the Colorado-based company calls for a one-time $10,000 payment to the township.
The 130-mile, 12-inch steel pipeline would originate in northern West Virginia and travel through Washington and Greene counties, connecting local Marcellus Shale gas wells with the nation's interstate pipeline system.
