Pittsburgh StepTrek is the annual South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association fundraiser that supports projects for the betterment of the community. This family-friendly event combines photography, historic narrative and a sense of neighborhood dependent upon steps. Through this annual event, we keep the city focused on maintenance of city steps throughout the neighborhood.

2712 Burham Street Development: They are seeking a use variance with Zoning Board of Adjustment to have two single-family residential attached units (one in each parcel) in an R1D zoning district that only allows single-family residential detached.
Arlington Recreation Center Mural: This is a community review for an art project on a city owned wall.

Join the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association’s summer picnic on Tuesday, July 11, once again at the Bandi Schaum Community Garden. We’re excited to announce that the awesome La Palapa Food Truck will once again be serving up delicious tacos throughout the event starting at 6:30pm. Bring your family and friends to mingle with neighbors, make new connections, and savor the flavors of summer. Mark your calendars and join us for an fun evening of community and great food.
Tacos are free! Bring a chair or blanket and a beverage or dessert to share!
You responded to the survey, now come see the initial results! We will have Roberto Maxwell, our local artist, on hand to display some options for the mural, and we will be answering questions and taking feedback!
We will have a table set up outside the Arlington Recreation Center from 5-7pm on Monday June 26. Hope to see you there!
Focusing on the front-facing façade of your home, we will have prizes for: 1) Best Simple Planter (for those with little space but go above and beyond with a single pot or window box)
2) Best Front Garden (for those who have more than a simple planter and want to go all in)
3) Most Popular (where your vote will determine the best out there!)
To be eligible, your garden space must be at least 80% green. We love a good statue, but we want to see your green thumbs at work!
Submissions must be in by Wednesday, June 14th with garden spaces to be ready to photograph by Friday, June 30th.
Voting will occur between July 5th to July 10th and winners will be announced at our annual community picnic at Bandi Schaum Community Garden on July 11th.
Feeling like trekking it? Maps will be available on Social Media around July 5th to help you explore the beautiful gardens and enjoy the scenery.
The South Side Slopes Flower Contest aims to beautify the neighborhood and showcase the gardening talents of our residents. Whether you have a small space or a grand front garden, we want to celebrate your efforts and inspire others in our community.
