Disability access is the topic of a city "town hall"
Pittsburghers with disabilities met with Mayor Gainey, City Council members and key members of the city administration to talk about the issues they experience accessing sidewalks, businesses and even parks.
Paul O'Hanlon said the city's building inspectors refuse to consider handicapped accessibility when issuing an occupancy permit on a newly renovated building.
“The process of licensing acts of disability discrimination is itself an act of discrimination,” he said. “PLI seems to think the ADA doesn’t apply to it.”

Neighbors ask the city to pause intersection changes
In a city of confusing intersections, the intersection of Beechwood Boulevard with South Dallas Avenue and Beacon Street stands out as one of the worst. Motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians who venture through have to have a high tolerance for risk to journey through at all. As the Fern Hollow Bridge is getting readied to open, the city's Department of Mobility and Infrastructure has proposed left turns from Beacon or South Dallas and right turns off Beachwood onto South Dallas. Neighbors have started a petition to put those changes on hold.

A note on our coverage during this very weird phase of the Covid-19 pandemic: Print has made it through the pandemic, which we did not know that we would be able to do, but we are seeking new income streams for our family, because this is not making enough money for us to live on. Therefore, as we odd job our way out of this mess Print is not rushing back to publish more frequently, which means we are staying monthly for the time being. The most recent edition was published on November 17. The next issue is planned for December 15. If that changes, we will let you know in this space here and on our Facebook page. Thanks for sticking with us. Our plan is to keep slowly publishing as we emerge from this pandemic, if we ever do. Please be safe and healthy.
