Fitzgerald Vision Teams Schedule Public Listening Sessions

PITTSBURGH – Allegheny County Chief Executive Rich Fitzgerald today announced that the twelve Vision Teams have scheduled listening sessions to allow the public to weigh in on their work with suggestions and recommendations about what each team should be considering.

“While we have selected a strong group of professionals with expertise in each of the twelve vision team areas, I think it is extremely important that the general public have the opportunity to weigh in with their thoughts,” said Fitzgerald. “In addition to their concerns, I also hope that we have strong input on vision and direction that the teams, and the county, should go in during this process.”
