Penn State students solve problems of vacant city lots

Ten Penn State students have turned vacant lots into designer lots in four neighborhoods — at least conceptually.

At the Connelley Learning Center in the Hill District yesterday, the landscape architecture students displayed solutions to blighted lots, stormwater run-off and underused existing green spaces in Beltzhoover, Hays, the Hill and Lincoln Place. Two designs were for a white water rafting venue in the Neville Island back channel of the Emsworth lock and dam.
