McKeesport to get overhaul via 9 beautification projects

Nine McKeesport lots will get an overhaul under a Pittsburgh-based program that officials hope will “begin a conversation about what else can happen here.”

That’s according to project manager James Snow of GTECH — or Growth Through Energy and Community Health — a community development nonprofit.

GTECH Strategies provided $3,000 stipends obtained from the Benedum Foundation to nine ambassadors overseeing beautification projects from McKees Point to Penn State Greater Allegheny and the Reservoir area of the Seventh Ward.
