Briefs: Empty Carnegie Car Dealership Space Could Be Dunkin Donuts


Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


A Dunkin Donuts may open at what was the former North Star Chevrolet car dealership at Chestnut Street and Mansfield Boulevard. The property is about an acre in size and has been empty since 2008, when the dealership moved to Moon.

North Star Chevrolet has signed a development agreement with Heartland Restaurant Group of Pittsburgh, the main franchisee for Dunkin Donuts. Heartland officials were scheduled to meet with council this week to present an architectural plan for the space, said council President Rick D'Loss.

Mike Orie, vice president of real estate for Heartland Restaurant Group, said plans call for the Dunkin Donuts to take up 2,000 square feet of the space behind the BP gas station.

Heartland is "aggressively marketing and soliciting the space" in the hopes of recruiting other clients, Orie said.

The formal agreement exists between North Star and Heartland, but the official closing probably will not take place until six months from now, Stephan said.

Missile site ceremonyto kick offCollierpark creation

Bulldozers will be rolling next week at a demolition kick-off ceremony for Collier Township Park, a 72-acre area being redeveloped on part of a former Nike missile-defense site.

The public is invited to the event at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the former Charles E. Kelly Support Facility, 5 Lobaugh St., where the Collier Board of Commissioners, Parks and Recreation Board members, state Rep. Mark Mustio and other county and local officials will be present.

Refreshments will be offered, township Manager Salvatore Sirabella said.

"It's kind of a celebration," he said.

At the ceremony, demolition will begin on some of the 10 former Army barracks that will be knocked down during phase 1A of the project, which will include the creation of a dek hockey rink, a basketball court, two tennis courts, two pickleball courts and other amenities, by December.

Phase 1B, which will include the renovation of a community center and construction of a gym, will be finished by April 2014.

Those two phases are expected to cost about $10 million, Sirabella said.

Public help soughtto honor airmen inSewickley

The Tuskegee Memorial Project committee will seek public help to identify airmen in the hope of including them in the monument to be erected in Sewickley Cemetery.

Billboards around Pittsburgh will feature the faces of a handful of possible Tuskegee Airmen who have not been identified. The billboards are being donated by Lamar Advertising.

Regis Bobonis Sr., general chairman of the Tuskegee Memorial Project, said committee members discovered 30 images of World War II servicemen from the Teenie Harris Collection at the Carnegie Museum of Art. Of those, 10 have been preliminarily identified. If they are, more than 100 names total can be included in the monument.

Sewer video mandatedbeforeBaldwin Boroughproperty deals

Video camera inspections of sewer lateral lines must be completed before the sale or transfer of property in Baldwin Borough.

An ordinance that requires residents to test, and video, their lateral sewer lines -- the pipe that connects their sewage system to the main line -- to ensure there are no obstructions, cracks or water infiltration in them goes into effect April 23, solicitor Stanley Lederman said.

The ordinance is posted at www. baldwinborough.org.
