A ceremony last week at the former Charles Kelly Support Facility outside of Pittsburgh kicked off demolition of 10 dilapidated Army office buildings and barracks at the future site of a park for Collier Township. Reuse planning for the support facility started after it was designated for closure during the 2005 round of base closures. The township obtained 72 acres of the site for the park. A $150,000 grant from Allegheny County is covering much of the cost of demolition. Construction of a multipurpose field, tennis courts, dek hockey rink and playground is scheduled to begin after the demolition is complete, reported the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Most of the funds from a $6 million bond issuance will go toward the project.
