Just announced: October 2023 meeting dates to preview the draft budget

Our Budget, Our Values: Join us to preview the 2024 Budget!

In May, hundreds of neighbors from across our city came together to discuss neighborhood priorities and opportunities with City of Pittsburgh leaders. We listened, crunched the numbers, and are ready to share our first draft!

Join us for a summary of the 2024 draft budgets, and talk with city department leaders to learn how it will help us to succeed in our important endeavors. Dinner will be provided at all meetings.

RSVP by emailing neighbor@pittsburghpa.gov or by calling 311.
