Offered as a way for residents, business owners, property owners, and more to provide feedback to project leaders, the Downtown Development Activities Meetings allow neighborhood stakeholders to hear about plans proposed to affect the Downtown community.
As a Registered Community Organization for Downtown, the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership will host public meetings to review upcoming projects before they are reviewed by applicable City of Pittsburgh commissions and boards, allowing your feedback to be heard early in the planning process.
All meetings will take place at least thirty (30) days prior to the applicant’s first public hearing.
In-person meetings are currently postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic. All upcoming meetings will take place virtually online via Zoom. The Zoom link for the meeting will be available on the Department of City Planning’s Development Activities Meeting page online the day before the meeting date listed below.
The PDP will host Development Activities Meetings on the second Thursday of each month as long as there is at least one project on the agenda. All projects must communicate with the PDP at least 10 days in advance of their anticipated meeting date in order to be added to the meeting agenda. You can view all 2020 meeting dates below:
