In July 2020, Andrew Dash was appointed Director of City Planning. With his new role comes an opportunity to set a vision for the Department and the future of planning in Pittsburgh. We want to hear from residents what you need and want in the City of Pittsburgh to help guide the work from the Department of City Planning over the next year and beyond.
City Planning work includes neighborhood and park planning, citywide planning, sustainability, resiliency, zoning and development, historic preservation, and public art, in addition to the City's ADA initiatives. Let us know what you like to see and what you think we should prioritize by taking the survey below.
The work of City Planning is guided by documents for common processes and development:
- The Neighborhood Planning Guide established a common process for neighborhood plan development that allows equal opportunity to development regardless of neighborhood capacity. Completed plans from the Neighborhood Planning Program include the EcoInnovation District Plan, Manchester-Chateau Neighborhood Plan, Greater Hazelwood Neighborhood Plan, and Homewood Comprehensive Community Plan.
- The Climate Action Plan sets climate goals for the City's sustainabilty efforts.
- The Boards & Commissions provide review and approval of plans and projects across the City.
