Housing Resource Center Underway
October 23, 2009
Construction is now moving forward with our Housing Resource Center to be located in an area of the Packard Building in Wilkinsburg that we acquired with a grant from the Hillman Foundation several years ago.
The Center is being developed with grant funds from the Allegheny Foundation, a charitable trust of Richard M. Scaife.
It will consist of an office for Landmarks Community Capital Corporation East and a meeting and display room in which people from throughout Wilkinsburg and in fact the Western Pennsylvania area will be able to learn about housing restoration, solicitation of bids, and we will offer Do-It Yourself classes.
Various non-profit organizations here that specialize in various aspects of physical restoration, sustainability, greening buildings will provide educational services. The Center should be functioning by spring.
