The URA is All In On Equitable Development | #AllInPittsburghLeave a Comment
Under the leadership and vision of Mayor William Peduto, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has implemented many new initiatives aimed at creating the “Next Pittsburgh,” – one that’s more affordable, inclusive, sustainable, competitive, and works for all.
The URA has been a great partner to Neighborhood Allies over the years. We collaborate on a number of projects including our Penn Plaza Relocation efforts, Pittsburgh Blight Bootcamp, as well as our Equitable Development/p4 work, which was recently showcased in the Annual Report which was just released this week. Read the full report here.
We’re proud to see our Equitable Development work showcased as we work together to implement a positive development strategy that ensures everyone participates in and benefits from the region’s economic transformation—especially low-income residents, communities of color, immigrants, and others at risk of being left behind!
The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) is the City of Pittsburgh’s economic development agency, committed to creating jobs, expanding the City’s tax base and improving the vitality of businesses and neighborhoods. The URA achieves this mission by assembling, preparing and conveying sites for major mixed-use developments; and by providing a portfolio of programs that include financing for business location, relocation and expansion, housing construction and rehabilitation, and home purchases and improvements.
