Provide your input into URA's maintenance of vacant city lots


GTECH Strategies, in partnership with UrbanKind Institute (Dr. Jamil Bey), Fourth Economy Consulting, Pitt’s University Center on Social Urban Research (UCSUR), A. Phillip Randolph Institute, City Source Associaties, KRJ Contracting, Landforce, The Hilltop Men’s Group, and YouthPlaces are helping to redesign The URA’s vacant land maintenance process.

While the URA owns less than 10 percent of the publicly owned vacant land in the city, GTECH is seeking input to help ensure more awareness, transparency and ultimately community benefit. To begin this process, they are convening a series of five meetings throughout the city – co-hosted by The City of Pittsburgh and The Office of Mayor William Peduto, The URA, Representative Ed Gainey and Representative
