Here's why it might take three years for a Whole Foods to be built in Upper St. Clair.

It takes about six months to get tentative approval from the planning commission and board of commissioners, and another six months for final approval, according to Upper St. Clair Director of Community Development Scott Brilhart. Second, the site plan where Whole Foods will be located must undergo a traffic impact study and also obtain a highway occupancy permit from PennDOT…

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald last month called on Port Authority to make several changes to improve the efficiency of the system, including consolidation of light rail stops. "I’m glad to see the authority work proactively to address this issue. I understand that these stops were selected because the ridership was low and …
