2015 Capital Budget Hearing

The City of Pittsburgh will hold a public hearing to seek public comment from interested citizens, community organizations, and the business community on the 2015 Capital Budget. This hearing is separate from the 2015 Community Development Block Grant Program hearings.

The Capital Budget funds projects to build or renovate City assets such as bridges, roads, parks, and buildings. It also supports long-lasting programs to strengthen neighborhoods and improve quality of life. These public hearings allow Pittsburghers to voice opinions about where they feel City resources are best spent.

The hearing will begin at 6:00 PM and will be held at the following location:

Wednesday, October 29th
Morningside Senior Center
6944 President Way
Pittsburgh, PA 15206

Anyone interested in signing up to give testimony at the hearing should contact Jennifer Sample Presutti at 412-255-2640 or jennifer.sample@pittsburghpa.gov.

Neighbors have requested support for the following projects:

  • Repairing the hillside on Huron Street
  • Repairing Mission Street Bridge
  • General Improvements to our retaining walls, fences, and steps
  • Anything you want to see fixed in the Slopes

    Please find a way to pave St Joseph Way where it intersects with St. Thomas Street. The road is all gravel and has so many potholes that my anti lock brakes always come on when I drive down the hill to my house. It is dangerous and I am afraid one day I wont be able to stop and will just continue on over the hillside.

      Hi Karen,

      I agree they need to pave St. Joseph where it intersects with St. Thomas. They did the top part of St. Thomas and now it’s time the continue down the street!
