Units will be located in two unique buildings, the Madison at Washington Park and the Jefferson at Washington Park.No mention of Polk anywhere, though.
A developer with more than a dozen national chain hotels in the area is planning to build an all-suite hotel on Washington Road on land currently owned by the Mt. Lebanon Parking Authority.
Kratsa Properties, based in Harmar, plans a 98-room, seven-story hotel on what is called "Parcel A" on Washington Road. The land is now a metered parking lot.

Following the September 3 Labor Day holiday, the 42C Castle Shannon - Beechview route will operate every 10 minutes during weekday peak periods between Overbrook Junction, the transfer point between the Overbrook and Beechview Lines just south of Castle Shannon Station, and Downtown Pittsburgh. All 42C service will be provided by two-car trains, increasing capacity for all customers.Of note is that this new route is apparently also replacing the Mt. Lebanon short-trips, and there will be no 42S to South Hills village during peak hours. I couldn't find 42C timetables on the Port Authority website, so I'm not sure of the definition of "peak periods." Still, this sounds like a net-positive service change for Lebo riders, except for those who caught the "short trips" at Lebo station. (Now if they'd just eliminate some of those redundant stops on Broadway in Beechview...)

The recipe for Humble Pie cannot be found in a book. It is Mt. Lebanon resident Lara Cosentino's answer to her children Thomas, Peter and Josie's question, "What good works are you going to do for Lent?"
Thus from the mouths of babes the idea for Humble Pie, a class in the how to of making pie pastry, became reality. Lara, who learned the art and science of pie making from her mother, Mary Kovacic, is renowned in her neighborhood for both pies and a luncheon for friends before school closes.
Her kitchen became a classroom for two pie-making classes in April. The charge, a minimum $20 contribution to Just Harvest, an Allegheny County organization which seeks to eliminate hunger and poverty.
TO FRESHMEN CHEERLEADERS AND PARENTS:Freshman Orientation begins at 6:30 tonight with an introduction of staff and discussion of High School rules and regulations. It is disgraceful that the Mt. Lebanon cheerleading staff has decided that the High School administration is wasting their time by discussing rules and regulations with students from 6:30 - 7:00 pm at the Freshman Orientation. Apparently, that is not "crucial" to cheerleaders. It is also incredibly disrespectful that they will be arriving, in mass, a half hour late and totally disrupting the ongoing program. Its no wonder people think athletes are held to a different standard in Mt. Lebanon."
WE WILL BE DISMISSING THE FRESHMEN CHEERLEADERS AT 6:50 ON WEDNESDAY EVENING TO ATTEND THE 2011 NIGHT AT THE HIGH SCHOOL. THE CRUCIAL PART OF THE PRESENTATION IS THE DISCUSSION BY BOBBY PETROCELLI WHICH BEGINS AT 7 P.M. SO WE WILL BE SURE THAT THEY LEAVE IN A GROUP IN TIME TO ARRIVE AT THE AUDITORIUM BY 7 P.M. THANK YOU!!

Scott's unexpected status as immigrant beachhead does provide hope that metropolitan Pittsburgh can shed its label as one of the least international big cities in America. Its drop from melting pot status began after 1940, when the foreign-born population peaked at more than 12 percent and then continuously fell, hit a low of 2.4 percent in 1990 before inching up to 2.6 percent by 2000, the first increase in at least 50 years. It rose some more, to 3 percent, by 2004, but that increase was still the lowest among the nation's top 25 metro areas, trailing such places as Denver, Minneapolis, Cleveland, and Cincinnati.
The reason Pittsburgh's immigration rate is so alarming to followers of the local economy is what it portends: slow growth. As Pittsburgh's work force grows older and in need of replacement and as the region continues to lose population [but see Briem, above], economic development experts predict that an area unattractive to immigrants will have a hard time filling positions if the economy grows at even a marginal rate the next 10 to 20 years.
Author Gregg Zachary, who studied Pittsburgh's immigration challenges and last year reported on diversity in American cities, concluded Pittsburgh's pro-immigrant groups "are languishing, if not defeated." Civic leaders "have done little to tackle the widespread sense among foreigners that Pittsburgh is not an attractive destination."
Another issue has been brought up concerning the proposed Walgreens drugstore at Bower Hill Road and North Wren Drive, but Scott officials appear not to be overly concerned about it.
