Deasy announces $3.5 million investment for Fairywood industrial redevelopment project

(Jul 19, 2022)

PITTSBURGH, July 19 – State Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, today announced the Commonwealth Financing Authority approved a combined $3.5 million Business in Our Sites grant and loan for a project to develop an industrial park in Pittsburgh’s Fairywood neighborhood. “This significant investment will help to transform an area of Fairywood that has been vacant for a long time and give it a new purpose,” Deasy said. “I’m pleased to help secure funding for a project that will provide an economic boost to the West End by attracting new businesses and creating a variety of jobs.” Deasy said the Commonwealth Financing Authority will supply a $1.4 million grant and a $2.1 million loan to The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh to assist in the expansion of Fairywood Industrial Park. The URA and Regional Industrial Development Corporation of Southwestern PA first announced the redevelopment of the 25-acre site in Fairywood back in April 2022. The Business in Our Sites grant and loan program provides financial assistance to municipalities and others to plan and prepare sites for future use by businesses, private developers and others.

Deasy: Privatizing PA’s liquor system too complex to be decided by constitutional amendment on ballot

(Jun 09, 2022)

HARRISBURG, June 9 – In Wednesday’s House Liquor Control Committee meeting, Democratic Chair Dan Deasy voted no on a constitutional amendment that asks voters to decide on whether to privatize Pennsylvania’s Fine Wine and Good Spirits stores. “This constitutional amendment is not a simple question, and it seems disingenuous to ask voters to make an informed decision based on a two-sentence ballot question,” said Deasy, D-Allegheny. “Privatizing the state’s liquor system is a complex issue and in the past we have spent years trying to develop a plan to do so without success. This bill would rush that decision onto the ballot, without any serious proposal as to how this would actually work. This doesn’t just put the cart before the horse but would create a dangerous scenario that will leave legislators making decisions in the dark.” In his remarks to the committee, Deasy noted that should the constitutional amendment pass , the legislature would have 18 months to work out licensing, taxes, divesture of the LCB stores and product availability. He noted that not only would any plan have to be created and passed by both chambers and the governor, but it also would have to be in place and have new licensing underway in order to ensure Pennsylvanians are able to purchase liquor after those 18 months are up. “We talk a lot about numbers and financial figures when discussing privatization, but let’s not Read more

Deasy announces $500,000 grant for Sheraden Park improvements

(Apr 25, 2022)

PITTSBURGH, April 25 – State Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny, announced $500,000 in funding from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to support the city of Pittsburgh’s Sheraden Park rehabilitation project. Deasy said the project includes improvements to the rest area/park building, grill area, hiking trail addition, children’s discovery garden, hillside dog park, wilderness education area, ADA-accessible community garden and apiary. The funding will also include site preparation, grading, landscaping, signage, stair repair, pedestrian lighting and safety improvements. The project will add 6,800 linear feet of cleared, graded trail additions and water control elements within Sheraden Park. “Sheraden Park is a pillar of the West Pittsburgh community and a place where people of all ages can enjoy the outdoors,” Deasy said. “The RACP funding makes basic improvements to the park’s existing amenities and provides new opportunities that are accessible to everyone. I’m excited for these upgrades and the investment in the future of Sheraden Park.” The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is a grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are authorized in the Redevelopment Assistance section of a Capital Budget Itemization Act, Read more
