ARP thanks community for outpouring of support

We are so grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of support for our funding application for the acquisition of the Brilliant Line.
Given that we only had 3 and 1/2 days to pull this off over Easter weekend, we had hoped for 100 letters and 1,000 positive comments in our survey…Thanks to you, we received a whopping 406 letters and 2,943 positive responses to the survey. More than 40% of you offered to volunteer to help transform this fabulous piece of property into a bike and pedestrian trail and Pittsburgh’s Brilliant High Line.
To all of the people and organizations and government entities who made this impressive show of community support: You are shaping the future of our environment, our health, and our Region.
it takes an enormous effort to get all this public support so quickly.
We especially appreciate Allegheny Valley Railroad for making this project possible at all, Rep.
