Public invited to hear presentations Dec. 1 on making Pittsburgh's streets safer for everyone


The City of Pittsburgh is organizing a Complete Streets public meeting on Tuesday, Dec 1, hosted by University of Pittsburgh. The Department of City Planning and the National Complete Streets Coalition will kick off the discussion around Complete Streets for Pittsburgh.

Presentations include City Planning Director Ray Gastil; Emiko Atherton, director of the National Complete Streets Coalition; and Jeff Riegner, Complete Streets expert and workshop instructor.

The kick-off meeting follows Mayor William Peduto’s April 10 Executive Order to adopt a Complete Streets policy for Pittsburgh’s public rights of way. This event is designed to inform the community about the ongoing plans behind its Complete Streets policy and how this policy will guide transportation investments.

Earlier this month, Mayor Peduto issued a statement regarding Safer Streets for All that said in part, “Making our streets safer is a critical priority. We are addressing this head on through new and renewed street infrastructure, the ongoing analysis necessary to make the right choices, and the education and enforcement initiatives to make it work.” 

The Complete Streets event will be held at the University of Pittsburgh, Alumni Hall - 4227 5th Avenue, in the Connolly Ballroom from 6:30-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The event is free to the public.
