The City of Pittsburgh is embarking on PLANPGH, the City’s first Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of PLANPGH is to create a shared vision and policies for the next 25 years of our City’s development. OpenSpacePGH, the City’s Open Space, Parks, and Recreation Plan, is one of the initial components of PLANPGH, and will provide the City with goals and strategies for its parks, recreation, and formal open space systems, as well as a tool to assist in putting its vacant properties into productive re-use. As part of the public outreach and participation for OpenSpacePGH, the City will be holding five public meetings in late April and early May. The outcome of these meetings will create the City’s vision for its open spaces, parks, and recreation areas, so get involved and help make Pittsburgh an even better place to live, work, play, and thrive!

As you may have heard by now, the Allegheny Riverfront Vision has been released.
“The Allegheny Riverfront Vision Plan presents a new direction for the banks of the Allegheny River and for the Strip District and Lawrenceville riverfront communities. It is a vision based on respecting fundamental ecological principles, employing smart strategies to increase resident and business connections, increasing the quality of urban living, and achieving a regenerative and sustainable market for long-term investment. Its recommendations address six miles of Pittsburgh’s Allegheny Riverfront, but its vision offers guidance for Pittsburgh as a riverfront city.” – Allegheny Riverfront Vision Plan
