The local free-marketeering Allegheny Institute is unhappy with both the Mt. Lebanon School Board and the municipality. Here's a taste of a long post from the Allegheny Institute blog, today:
The real problem is that local officials want to control who does the building and what type of residential development gets built. They do not trust the market to do the job. So, we have years of behind the scenes deal making to get a project done that suits the officials. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands in potential tax revenues have not been collected as would have happened if the property had been turned over to a developer and developed years ago.
