Topic: Growing the Mon Valley's industrial parks

How Topic Discussed: RIDC is the non-profit agency responsible for 15 industrial parks in the Pittsburgh area, including facilities in Duquesne, East Pittsburgh and McKeesport. What are some recent success stories at those locations? What are some of the challenges to attracting tenants? How does the historical nature of those locations either help or hinder redevelopment and re-use? Why have the Monongahela River waterfronts in McKeesport and Duquesne not been used for housing?
