Parking on Beverly On Thursday, November 10, residents, shoppers and business owners are invited to share their ideas about how to improve  parking in the Beverly Road Business District.

Commercial Districts Manager Eric Milliron and the planning firm of Environmental Planning and Design (EPD) will host a session for merchants from 9 to 10 a,m. and one for residents from 6 to 7:30 p.m., on the second floor of Bado’s Restaurant on Beverly Road. This will be the second round of meetings on the topic, and EPD will share input and data that was collected from the first round, which took place in late October.

There will be one final public meeting on Beverly Road parking, date and time to be determined, when all of the information will be presented and stakeholders can discuss a possible plan of action.



Banners for vets You’ve seen them on light poles in many other communities; the rectangular plastic banners that honor a veteran’s service. Now we’re gearing up to honor Mt. Lebanon vets. The municipality and the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon are partnering to display anywhere from 20 to 45 military banners in the Washington Road Business District.

All Mt. Lebanon veterans are eligible for inclusion in the project. Cost is $100 per banner, which will display the same picture on both sides. The business district has room for 45 banners. The banners would be on display from Memorial Day through Veterans’ Day 2017. If Mt. Lebanon receives more than 45, the banners will be rotated in over the course of the display period. To ensure that the display is as meaningful as possible, the municipality needs a minimum of 20 banners.

If you would like to participate in the banner program, you can visit beginning November 11 to download a copy of the application form.

Email a good quality photograph electronically scanned at 600 dpi or higher to or include a good quality photograph with the submission form. Once your photograph is scanned, it will be returned to you.

In order to have the banners up by Memorial Day, Mt. Lebanon needs all applications and photos to be submitted by April 28, 2017. Commercial Districts Manager Eric Milliron can answer questions about the program.

Or you can bypass the crowds, pick up a few things you won’t find on a department store shelf and put some money into the local economy on Small Business Saturday, November 26.  Some businesses are planning sidewalk sales, and there will be free parking on Washington and Beverly roads.  For more info on our local businesses and districts:
