2.  Set up volunteer task forces in the following areas:

  • Marketing and Promotion

  • Public Aesthetics

  • Develop Work Plans for 2019 action!

This meeting will be hosted by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) , the City of Pittsburgh, and the South Side Planning Forum organizations to tell everyone about the study results and the start of developing strategies to maintain and improve our business district and preserve and protect its national and city historic designations. 

As has been reported regularly at South Side Planning Forum meetings and covered in the South Pittsburgh Reporter, the study has been completed. Consultant Fourth Economy’s 92-page final report on the study is available at the URA’s website at

The work of the consultant, project steering committee, focus groups, surveys, and the July 2018 community workshop collectively resulted in recommendations for creating work plans to be built on the findings of the study.  These recommendations are intended to continue involving all interested parties to be a part of developing meaningful strategies to make the South Side business district the best that it can be given our current resources.  

Thank you, we look forward to seeing you
