Any changes to Pittsburgh's rules of conduct "must not have the effect of restricting access by public officials to charitable events," Mayor Luke Ravenstahl wrote in a letter to the city's Ethics Hearing Board.

A modest article posted to WTAE clarifies what happened yesterday.

"I think both groups have stressed the opportunity that is here and we agree: to not repeat what happened in the 1960s when Mellon Arena was built," said Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.

Both groups.

"You are going to see a development plan well in excess of $10 million that includes private money, probably state money and some infrastructure money and that the development plan will be developed," said Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato. "We can't tell you the price, because there is not a master yet. The master plan will drive the development, and we don't have that yet."

Regardless of everything else, there should be unity of purpose around the need for Master Plan approval before the Penguins get to break ground.
