Tell the Pittsburgh Penguins: "Follow the Hill District Community Plan!"
"Redevelopment for Whom?" The Hill District Community is extremely concerned about the Penguins' plans for the Lower Hill Development. Residents are concerned that the Penguins’ proposed housing prices will effectively exclude the vast majority of African-American households in Pittsburgh from living in a redeveloped Lower Hill District.
Is the City of Pittsburgh really investing in our communities? Or will they end up continuing the dark legacy of urban renewal?

Hill District Arts Committee
"Help develop an arts plan for the Hill"
The Greater Hill District Master Plan calls for a community vision for the arts. This Arts Plan would include everything from art classes to creating artist residencies to using arts to brand a district identity. To get the ball rolling, we are asking community members who live and/or work in the Hill District how they want the arts to grow in their neighborhood.
