Pending Arrival of Spring Means Outdoor Youth Recreation Classes Will Soon Be Available

Warmer days are on our horizon. Brentwood Borough will provide opportunities for our youths to enjoy the upcoming pleasant temperatures while developing their skills in popular sports. Beginning in April, the Borough will renew its successful partnership with Jump Start Sports, and this entity will host its popular introductory soccer, dek hockey, and basketball programs at our state-of-the-art park facilities. The Borough will concurrently relaunch its "Road Runners" track club. When the school year comes to a close, Jump Start will help to keep area children active and engaged through its themed athletic camps. A total of seven separate programs will be available. For a full list of course description, dates, and fees, visit the Parks & Recreation section of our website.

Council Grants Permission to Two Major Projects

At its July 23rd meeting, Borough Council authorized two transformative construction initiatives. Each of these projects will provide a significant boost to the vitality of our municipality. First, Council approved the final land development plan for a proposed small format hospital. This taxable new facility, which is one of four that are being designed by Allegheny Health Network to expand suburban access to healthcare, will serve as a gateway to the municipality for southbound traffic travelling via Route 51. Second, the body made a final selection on the scope of improvements to Brentwood's cherished community pool. Based upon extensive resident feedback, Council endorsed a project $2.9 million project that includes relocated changing areas and restrooms. It is preliminarily planned that the site will be closed for the 2019 season to accommodate construction activity.

Brentwood Residents are "Taking It to the Streets"

Brentwood is grateful for the incredible support that it has received for its Community Day event; on June 2nd, the Borough will expand its seasonal offerings by closing our municipal main street to vehicles and hosting a street fair.
