Northside GTECH ambassadors look to transform vacant lots

GTECH Strategies held its ReClaim Northside project kick-off Wednesday, April 22 at the Pittsburgh Project in Perry Hilltop.

Almost a year after entering the vacant-lot-saving program, 14 community ambassadors from eight different Northside neighborhoods shared the progress of each of their respective projects.

“We work with communities across Allegheny County to address land-use issues like vacant land because we view them as platforms for change, growth, engagement, learning, creativity and innovation,” Evaine K. Sing, GTECH director of operations & programming, said. “All of the projects tonight are examples of all those things.

“They’ve been working with us since last October so they’ve been working very diligently on their projects and we’re excited to see the fruits of their labor.”
