Public Safety Concerns: Recent Shootings
UPDATE: 6 August 2018 at 2p. The community meeting (formerly listed as Wed 8/8) is being rescheduled. See below.
From GCA Board and Councilman O’Connor:
Dear Greenfield residents,
We wanted to clarify meetings that will be occurring in the next few weeks.
The Board of the Greenfield Community Association (GCA) and Councilman O’Connor are meeting with Pittsburgh Zone 4 Police Commander Daniel Herman tonight, Monday August 6.
At this meeting they’ll discuss the recent shootings in the neighborhood and nearby areas and select a date for a community meeting that’ll be open to the public. The meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday August 8 was the GCA’s already-scheduled Public Safety Committee meeting. In light of these recent events, that Public Safety Committee has been cancelled and will be combined with the larger community meeting, the details of which will be announced soon. As soon as a date, time and location is selected the public will be informed.
Thank you for your interest in ensuring that our community remains safe and secure.
— GCA Board and Councilman O’Connor
