In loving memory of Dan Rose 1921 -2015


Incorporated in 1864, historic Irwin Borough is a one square mile town nestled in the foothills of the Laurel Mountains just 35 miles east of Pittsburgh.  Our thriving downtown offers businesses a chance to experience a small town flavor while in close proximity to Rt. 30 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  In contrast, our Route 30 frontage provides those businesses high traffic volume and easy access.  Our many activities, recreation facilities, and cultural events throughout the year provide an ideal atmosphere for over 4100 residents to live and work.  Norwin School District is consistently one of the top schools in the state, facilitated by a sense of community pride and spirit. Stop by sometime to experience Irwin's unique charm, and find out why we invite you to

"find your place here".

Ladies and Gentlemen,
On Behalf of the Lamp Theatre Board, attached please find the plans for the Lamp Theatre Renovation Project. The plans and specifications are prepared by LBRA Architecture, Lou Bernardi, AIA under the direction of the Lamp Board. I will have a set of plans and specifications available at the Council meeting next week which will then be available for public review.  At the Council meeting, we anticipate making the contract awards for Bid Package 2 which will be opened on 3/10/15 at 10AM at the Borough Office. Bid package 2 includes the General Construction and Finish work, Plumbing and HVAC equipment, Electrical and Theatrical Lighting work, as well as the Projection Equipment. The awards made at the Council meeting will allow us to proceed with physical construction work by the contractors. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you.

 Council voted unanimously in June 2013 to purchase the Lamp Theater, so that a $500,000 grant from the state and county would not expire.  To date, The Relight the Lamp Committee has  raised  the $150,000 match that the borough was required to release the grant money.  We need to raise just $100,000 more to reach our fundrasing goals. and another $25,000 for a small operating budget.  Click here to help
