Welcome to the Borough of Braddock
A Great Place to Live · Work · Play
I’m Tina Doose, the President of Braddock Borough Council, and on behalf of the entire Council I extend a hearty welcome to everyone visiting our home page for the first time. I hope you will become a frequent visitor as we constantly update our site with the many activities and developments that are taking place in Braddock.
Our community is growing and developing in ways that will astound you. I invite you to drive down our main street, Braddock Avenue and take in the view. You will see newly constructed residences, The Overlook, on the site of the former hospital. Next to the residences is a new business complex that is home to the Allegheny Health Network Urgent Care facility on the second floor and office spaces on the first floor, one of which is the local office of State Representative Paul Costa. Five creative studios anchor the complex and will provide retail and work space for artists and small business owners.
Across Braddock Avenue, the Mon Valley Initiative is remodeling a historic property into retail and living spaces, and new businesses are popping up all along our commercial corridor and throughout the borough: The Brew Gentlemen, a small micro-brewery and a Fossil Free Diesel Fueling Station are up and running and Superior Motors, a Kevin Sousa restaurant is expected to open in 2015. You can learn more about the changes happening in my hometown by exploring our borough website.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a strong leadership team to re-build a community, and I would like to introduce you to some of the members of TEAM BRADDOCK. Comprised of elected officials, borough employees, business owners, community leaders, residents and friends, TEAM BRADDOCK is working hard to make Braddock a great place to live, work and play.
It is my hope that you will JOIN TEAM BRADDOCK! You can learn more about Team Braddock and one of our most exciting projects, the creation of our new Civic Plaza located on Braddock Avenue at the foot of The Overlook residences and the volunteer group that is supporting it, FRIENDS OF THE PARK.
I invite all of you to let me know what you think. We welcome hearing from everyone about the exciting changes that are happening in Braddock and any ideas for positive progress you have. May God Bless Braddock Pennsylvania!
