Rouse Quoted on Pittsburgh Gaming IssueOn May 2, 2007 by Schnader in Litigation
On May 2, 2007, Deborah Rouse was mentioned in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article “Traffic Study Jams Vote on Casino’s Master Plan.” The City of Pittsburgh’s planning commission placed a two-week postponement on PITG Gaming LLC’s plan to build its proposed North Shore Casino while the commission conducted a more detailed traffic management plan. The revised study will examine how casino patrons will affect existing traffic related to Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Pirates games and also will consider Carnegie Science Center’s concerns about parking and pedestrian safety, particularly on North Shore Drive. In addition, the study will be expanded beyond the immediate vicinity of the casino – to be built between the science center and the West End Bridge – to include a broader swath of the North Side and West End Circle. Deborah, representative attorney for PITG Gaming LLC, said both the Steelers and Pirates received project development approvals from the planning commission before submitting plans to manage traffic and parking for Heinz Field and PNC Park.
