Body

Whereas, in 1995 and in 2010 the City entered into fifteen (15) year Lease Agreements with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater (“PBT”) for the area commonly referred to as Denny Park; and

 

Whereas, under the terms of those Lease Agreements, the PBT agreed to renovate and maintain the park in exchange for the ability to use parking spaces along with park patrons; and

Section 2.  The Lease Agreement will be for a term no longer than twenty-nine (29) years and in consideration therefore, the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater will maintain the entire grounds known as Denny Park, other than a defined area containing a play structure, which will be licensed back to the City of Pittsburgh.
