There are many ways to help Team Braddock

FRIENDS OF THE PARK:

One of our most exciting developments in the borough is the development of a new Civic Plaza at the base of The Overlook residences. This communal space on the main corridor of our community will be a place for people to gather, to share, to reflect, to enjoy, and to appreciate the natural beauty of our home town. FRIENDS OF THE PARK (FOP) is a volunteer run group created to support the Civic Plaza financially and physically, as the borough goes forward with the design and fundraising necessary to create the Plaza, and to ensure the proper maintenance and management of the Plaza once it is completed.

Once the Plaza is built, volunteers will be needed to keep it litter free, clean and landscaped. Before the Plaza is built, the FOP will be charged with raising construction and maintenance funds through fundraising activities. We are asking local business owners and residents to show their support of this monumental effort to build a common space by making donations to the FOP fund.

  • Businesses for a $50 contribution will receive a decal to show in their window designating them as a Friend of the Park. They will also receive one of our TEAM BRADDOCK T-shirts.
  • Individuals for a $25 contribution will receive a TEAM BRADDOCK team shirt to show their support. If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Park, please fill out the contact form on this page.

BRADDOCK ANNUAL COMMUNITY DAY COMMITTEE:

Each summer, usually in August, the borough comes together and celebrates with a community day. Last year the annual parade was resurrected and we hope to continue this tradition in 2015. Braddock Avenue is closed to traffic and community members gather to eat, listen to music and greet each other. Community groups are represented as well as local businesses. Planning for this event is year-round and committee members are charged with the organization and fundraising for the event. There are several positions available and if you are interested send a letter to the borough manager or fill out the contact form on this page.

BRADDOCK ANNUAL CLEAN UP DAY COMMITTEE:

The borough would like to have an annual day where residents and volunteers work together to beautify our open spaces, both public and privately owned. Sharing the work and tools, rounding up electronic recyclables that are not collected in regular garbage pick-up, disposing of large refuse items in borough provided dumpsters, these are a few of the tasks we would like committee members to organize for the good of the community. If you are interested, please fill out the contact form on this page.

BOROUGH BOARD AND COMMITTEE POSITIONS:

The borough has several standing committees and boards that require the active participation of borough residents. Following are the list of committees and boards that require volunteer membership: Zoning Hearing Board, Planning Commission, Tree Commission, Vacancy Board, and the Braddock Water Authority Board. There is currently an opening on the Vacancy Board and if a Braddock resident is interested in applying to fill this position, please fill out the contact form on this page.

LIGHT-UP NIGHT COMMITTEE:

This event takes place during the holiday season and that the borough would like to resurrect it as an annual celebration. Members are needed to form a planning and fundraising committee. Please fill out the contact form below if you are interested in volunteering to help with this event. Note: If you have any other ideas for ways in which individuals can help Braddock grow and improve, please let us know. You can call the borough office at 412-271-1018 or email the borough manager at braddockmanager@comcast.net.
