Introduction

Infrastructure refers to the non-transportation systems that help to nourish and sustain an area. Within the neighborhood plan, many projects come with opportunities to enhance the neighborhood while checking meeting several infrastructure sustainability criteria. With the need of a long-term and maintainable solution, the infrastructure chapter requires plans addressing:
  • stormwater management
  • open space
  • energy system planning
  • waste management and recycling
  • tree canopy
  • habitat restoration
  • digital network

It also optionally includes urban agriculture, clean air, water use, and systems integration.

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.

Learn more about opportunities to be involved on the homepage.

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.
