Governor Wolf: Restore Pennsylvania Can Address Vital Infrastructure Needs in Carnegie Borough

first_img Infrastructure,  Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Carnegie, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf toured the Andrew Carnegie Free Library and Music Hall to see the unfinished Library Park project, its completion stymied by mudslide damage. Following the tour, he outlined the components of the most aggressive infrastructure plan in generations, Restore Pennsylvania.“Heavy rains throughout 2018 demonstrated vividly and tragically that our flood mitigation planning and infrastructure have not kept up, leaving communities and individuals throughout the state with massive cleanup costs, and few options to turn to for assistance,” Gov. Wolf said.“The library and music hall should not have had to use money slated for a green space to repair mudslide damage. But they did what they had to do to make the area safe and secure for residents and visitors.”The governor’s plan will help communities like Carnegie mitigate the effects of flooding and extreme weather, address blight, and expand broadband access and green infrastructure, restoring communities that simply do not have the funding for these projects.To achieve these goals, Governor Wolf announced an ambitious infrastructure initiative, Restore Pennsylvania, funded by the monetization of a commonsense severance tax. Restore Pennsylvania will invest $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant high-impact projects throughout the commonwealth to help catapult Pennsylvania ahead of every state in the country in terms of technology, development, and infrastructure.Encompassing new and expanded programs to address five priority infrastructure areas including high speed internet access, storm preparedness and disaster recovery, downstream manufacturing, business development, and energy infrastructure, demolition, revitalization, and renewal, and transportation capital projects, Restore Pennsylvania projects will be driven by local input about community needs. Projects identified by local stakeholders will be evaluated through a competitive process to ensure that high priority, high impact projects are funded and needs across Pennsylvania are met.The governor was joined on the tour and press conference by Senator Wayne Fontana and Representative Anita Kulik.“This region is no stranger to natural disasters and infrastructure problems,” Sen. Fontana said. “And as the impact of climate change unleashes more weather emergencies more often, we need to do all we can to prevent or minimize flooding, landslides, lead poisoning and so many other tragedies. We cannot continue putting band-aids on gaping wounds and continue kicking the can down the road when it comes to our aging infrastructure.”“All the municipalities that make up the 45th District have in some way or another been affected by the heavy rains and flooding that continue to hit our Commonwealth,” Rep. Kulik said. “Homes, businesses, municipal properties have all been destroyed at great cost to our constituents. We are very happy to welcome the Governor to Carnegie to hear about the his Restore PA plan — it it helps open the conversation about how to help our citizens.”Flooding Prevention and RecoveryRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding for flood prevention that will protect against severe weather and save homes and businesses in flood prone areas across the state. Restore Pennsylvania will provide funding to help towns and cities prepare for flooding and severe weather, upgrade flood walls and levees, replace high-hazard dams, and conduct stream restoration and maintenance. Restore Pennsylvania will also establish a disaster relief trust fund to assist individuals who suffer losses that are not compensated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or other programs.BlightRestore Pennsylvania will increase resources for addressing blight by providing financial resources at the local level to establish land banks and acquire and demolish blighted buildings in order to create new development opportunities or provide new green space. The funding will be administered by entities established by the legislature as land banks or demolition funds.BroadbandRestore Pennsylvania will provide funding to completely bridge the digital divide in every community in Pennsylvania, making Pennsylvania a better place to work, do business, and live. Grants will be available to support installation of infrastructure to bring high speed internet to every corner of the commonwealth. Funding will support every phase of the process from feasibility testing to connection.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan here.

Klopp wants Liverpool to be ‘best stay at home fans’ amid police concerns

Klopp wants Liverpool to be ‘best stay at home fans’ amid police concerns

Police want at least six Premier League matches played at neutral venues Premier League chiefs have set June 17 as the date for the top flight to restart following the coronavirus delay. They hope to play the majority of the matches behind closed doors on a home and away basis at clubs’ usual stadiums. However, police are concerned about the issue of hardcore fans potentially flouting social distancing rules by congregating wherever their team play and want several fixtures, including Manchester City and Manchester United games not involving Liverpool, played at neutral venues. Liverpool are two wins away from sealing their first English title for 30 years. The Reds could be crowned champions as early as the first weekend of the restart if Manchester City lose to Arsenal and they beat Everton in a Merseyside derby. “I heard a few days ago a really good phrase about how we have the best home fans in the world, so we should maybe now say the best stay at home fans in the world,” Klopp told beIN SPORTS’ Keys & Gray Show, which is available on YouTube. “Now we are really desperate to play because we want to become champions on the pitch and it looks like we can do that wherever it will be,” the German boss added. “We hope it will be at Anfield but we don’t know, and that’s not important. “Most of the people on this planet have never had a chance in the life to become champion of the Premier League, for us it looks like that we have that chance. So we take it. “However, there will be a moment in our life when we have time and the opportunity and it’s allowed again to celebrate together.” – ‘Not perfect’ – Klopp insisted winning the title in an empty stadium would still be an “absolutely exceptional day in my life”. “It’s not perfect, but we know for a while and it will not be perfect but we are already used to that.” Earlier on Friday, police said they had reached a consensus with the Premier League that “balances the needs of football, while also minimising the demand on policing”. “The majority of remaining matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a small number of fixtures taking place at neutral venues, which, contrary to some reports, have yet to be agreed,” said Mark Roberts, the Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts of South Yorkshire Police “The Premier League’s ambition is to complete all of our remaining fixtures this season home and away, where possible,” a Premier League statement said. “We are working with our clubs to ensure risks are assessed and minimised, while co-operating with the police at a local and national level.” There had been complaints from some clubs towards the bottom of the table, including Brighton, about the impact of playing at neutral venues on sporting integrity. Brighton chief executive Paul Barber is confident his relegation-threatened side’s matches will not be at neutral venues. “Obviously the majority of home games we expect to be at home for everybody,” he said.
