Possible zone change on Mount


August 29, 2017

A Zone Change Petition application has been submitted to change the zoning designation for a property in Mount Washington.

An application was filed by Indovina Associates Architects on behalf of property owners, to change parcel 6-G-251 in the Mount Washington neighborhood from Mixed-Use Planned Unit Development (AP) to Grandview Public Realm sub-district C (GPR-C). Enactment of this rezoning will permit the involved property to be developed only for uses permitted in the Grandview Public Realm - C (GPR-C) Zoning District.

The documents submitted as part of this application are available online at and they are available in paper copy at the Zoning Counter at 200 Ross Street, 3rd Floor. The paper copies may be examined between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding city holidays.

City Council is interested in obtaining the opinion of residents concerned with this matter. A public hearing has been scheduled before the City Council on Wednesday. Sept. 13 at 1:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 5th floor, City-County Building. Attendance and testimony will be appreciated.

The proposal received a recommendation from Planning Commission and it will ultimately be the decision of City Council and the mayor to change the zoning category.

In order to speak or present information to City Council at the public hearing, residents must call the City Clerk's Office at 412-255-2138 prior to the hearing date in order to have their name placed on the speaker's list. Those who need additional information, should visit, email zoning or call 412-255-2241.

This submission is presently being considered by the Pittsburgh City Council which will be taking action in the near future.
