Four Mile Run Watershed and Mobility Public Meeting May 22

  1. 1. DECEMBER 2016 FOUR MILE RUN WATERSHED AND MOBILITY STORMWATER IMPROVEMENTS & MOBILITY Project Update: May 22, 2018
  2. 2. I. Introduction II. Mobility Update III. Stormwater Management Update (PWSA) IV. Q & A Session AGENDA Four Mile Run Public Meeting
  3. 3. 1. 2000s Four Mile Run experiences major flood/sewer overflow issues 2. 2016 PWSA completes Green First plan 3. 2017 PPC Completes concept design for Green Infrastructure and mobility improvements in Panther Hollow 4. 2018 DOMI/URA further definition of mobility improvements; PWSA engineering design for green infrastructure 5. 2019 PWSA regrading of Hollow/initiation of green infrastructure improvements; DOMI initiation of trail restoration and improvements 3 FOUR MILE RUN Project Evolution
  4. 4. • Among the city’s largest sewersheds • Increased storm and sewer flows exceed what system can easily accommodate. • Sewers overflow with moderate to heavy rains causing flooding and health/safety concerns • Slow flow of water, retain some to reduce capacity demands during peak times 4 WHY?Combined Sewer Management
  5. 5. For residents of zip code 12507 (Greenfield, Hazelwood and Glen Hazel) • Oakland (North, West/Central or South) is the most significant commute destination for employed residents, followed by CBD, Strip District and South Side. • Among employed residents, 77% drive alone to work while 4.5% bike or walk and 14% take transit. • 10% of residents are unemployed (actively seeking work but unable to find or access) • 19% of residents are at or below the poverty line 5 WHY?Mobility and Connectivity
  6. 6. 1. Safety • Must address flooding first; no increase in impervious surfaces • Must keep roads clear for emergency responders; may not use Saline Street, add traffic or add parking congestion or burden 2. Health • May not add more vehicle emissions • May not add additional noise pollution 3. Parkland • Must maintain integrity of Schenley Park • Bicyclists/pedestrians are priority 4. Access • Must be available to all residents. 5. Connectivity • Must provide additional bike/ped connections to local neighborhoods or destinations. 6 RESIDENT CONCERNS01.18.2018 Neighborhood Presentations
  7. 7. • Support/enable the rapid implementation of green infrastructure and stormwater overflow mitigations. • Address existing and near term projected mobility gaps; increase connectivity and equitable access to opportunity. • Preserve and protect local neighborhood health, safety and quality of life. • Promote sustainable mobility and advance the city’s sustainability goals for emissions and energy use. • Support community economic revitalization efforts and promote transit-oriented development 7 MON-OAKLAND MOBILITY Project Principles and Objectives
  8. 8. 8 MOBILITY PUBLIC PROCESS
  9. 9. 1. Quantify demand for connectivity and access between neighborhoods and Oakland 2. Explore routes and technologies to meet demand 3. Recommend mobility amenities for design that can coincide with the Four Mile Run green infrastructure project 4. Identify the associated provisions and policies to make a new connection work MON-OAKLAND MOBILITY Study Components 9 HAZELWOOD GREENFIELD FOUR MILE RUN SQUIRREL HILL OAKLAND PANTHER HOLLOW
  10. 10. o Engagement Plan o Three public meetings o Smaller meetings with the immediate neighborhood representatives and primary stakeholders o www.mon-oaklandmobility.com o Email: 4milerun.mobility@pittsburghpa.gov o Goals: o Share the potential alternative routes and technologies o Gather input on the alternatives o Provide a way for people to inform the design 10 THE PUBLIC PROCESS Mon-Oakland Mobility Study March, April, May Determine the preferred alternative February Determine preferred alternative and necessary accompanying policies January Identify and evaluate options November Identify needs, wants, opportunities and constraints
  11. 11. 11 WHO WE MET WITH Mon-Oakland Mobility Resident Advisory Group • The Run Resident Action Team • SHUC • Hazelwood Initiative • Oakland Planning and Development Corporation • Greenfield Residents Association Other Stakeholders • Port Authority • Univ. of PIT • CMU • PTCA (Pittsburgh Technology Center Association) • Hazelwood Green • Bike Pittsburgh • PCRG • Oakland BID • Oakland Transportation Management Association
  12. 12. • Designed w/ stormwater management in mind- works with and supports flooding mitigation efforts • Preserve the “parkness” of the park • Safe, reliable, available 24 hrs/day • Zero or low carbon • Integrates with public transit system • Support economic revitalization and opportunity for all • Provide alternative to using a car; provide a public and affordable alternative • Separate bike/ped and vehicles • Don’t add frequent bus or shuttle traffic to adjacent neighborhoods 12 WHAT WE HEARDAttributes of a successful connection
