Yesterday afternoon Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and other government leaders discussed the preparation for the upcoming Jason Aldean concert to be held at PNC Park this Saturday.
While the majority of his comments dealt with the issues in the parking lots, he did briefly speak about the boaters’ use of the North Shore prior to and during the event. According to his official release, no specific rules were put into place for the event, but he did offer several recommendations.
“Boaters are encouraged to practice safe, responsible activity on both the water and on shore. Due to safety concerns, authorities do not recommend that boaters “raft” or tie boats together on the rivers,” the statement read.
Although any new restrictions have not been put into place yet, the Mayor’s office is working on drafting an ordinance to regulate the use of the North Shore by boaters. They have also said that they will invite the public to comment on the new rules before any decisions are finalized. Please check back to BoatLocal.com/Pittsburgh for future updates and notices.
