Welcome to the Community Table!

  



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.

  Will the City of Pittsburgh invest in our communities or continue the 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.


To learn more, email Bonnie Laing at laing@hdcg.org or Tia Torres at tia@hdcg.org

"By the community, for the community!"


Completed in 2011, the Greater Hill District Master Plan is a guide for future community development efforts. Community residents and stakeholders worked together to craft this collective vision for the future of our neighborhood.
