Calling all Hill District Artist's and Arts Lovers!
Help Develop an Arts Plan for the Hill.
The Greater Hill District Plan calls for a comprehensive Arts Plan that addresses everything from performances and art classes to creating artist residencies and living spaces to using arts to create a new neighborhood image. We are getting the ball rolling by asking people who live and/or work in the Hill District how they want the arts to grow in the Hill District.
Dear City Planning:
"Who will be able to live in the Lower Hill?"
Will you join us in asking the Department of City Planning to require the Pittsburgh Penguins to conduct a fair housing market study to determine the likely racial composition of housing in the redeveloped Lower Hill District.
