WHEREAS, the Challenge was inaugurated by Judith Harvey, Michael Barbush, and Mary Jane Barbush in the mid-1990s and has historically been led by a team of volunteers, including a robust Litter Brigade, which demonstrates how a small community of committed neighbors can come together over many years to highlight their neighborhood’s assets, provide a great adventure for participants, and support their community; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the City of Pittsburgh declares the second Saturday of October, October 10, 2020, “Fineview Step Challenge Day” here in our most livable City of Pittsburgh.
