The development aspect of the neighborhood planning process works on:
- Land Use Policy and Regulations
- Urban Sustainable Design
- Equitable Economic Development
By creating an open dialogue and engagement between the Greater Hill District community and the Department of City Planning, and the community of the Hill District, the Greater Hill District Master Plan can become an effective reality by making goals a reality and creating an equitable and effective use for development and thriving economic empowerment for the whole of the neighborhood.
Your input is essential to the planning process. Staff and the Steering Committee will use your input to update the Greater Hill District Master Plan
- Input on this page and other topic-based pages (i.e., Community, Development, Mobility, and Infrastructure) will be used to update existing goals for the plan specific to those topics. This goal language will become part of the plan, but will also be used to guide the proposals developed in the Action Teams in the year ahead.

This neighborhood planning process will update and enhance the Greater Hill District Master Plan (2011) and incorporate other community plans including the Greenprint (2009) and the Centre Avenue Redevelopment and Design Plan (2015).
Pittsburgh can meet its goals to achieve a more sustainable and equitable future through the collective action of our neighborhoods. Community input informed the creation of citywide goals that are now being translated into action through a new generation of neighborhood plans.
Pittsburgh’s neighborhood plans focus on four topics areas:
- Community: Meeting the needs of residents, employees, students, and stakeholders.
- Development: Maximizing the benefits of new development for the community.
- Mobility: Making it easier, safer, and healthier for people to get around.
- Infrastructure: Nourishing neighborhoods through new energy, stormwater, and open space systems.
Action Teams are comprised of residents, students, employees, property owners, agencies, and professionals interested in working to develop projects and programs for the neighborhood plan. They are an opportunity for building partnerships while developing feasible action items for the plan.
The Community Action Team develops proposals to serve the needs of the Hill District's existing residents, employees, students, and visitors.
