About the MOVEPGH Design Workshops:

MOVEPGH Workshop #1 is the first of four (4) week-long MOVEPGH public designworkshops to be held around the City over the next six months. Each workshop will highlight different portions of the City of Pittsburgh--Click here to view the map of focus geographies of all four workshops.  These “design studio” workshops will be multi-disciplinary, working design sessions where stakeholders, designers, technical experts, and the public will work together to develop, design and plan solutions.  TheMOVEPGH team will work all week long in a different location for each of the four Workshops to develop and test various design and planning ideas related to:

  • transportation solutions for areas of change and redevelopment;
  • expanding multi-modal choice;
  • developing street designs and complete streets;
  • creating interlinked bike, pedestrian, transit, and street networks;
  • protecting areas of no change;
  • expanding connectivity;
  • selectively expanding vehicle capacity

Workshop Format:

Each of the four workshops will follow a similar schedule:

Day 1 – Evening Kick-off meeting

Day 2, 3, & 4 – Daytime Open House work sessions

Day 4 – Evening Wrap-up event

Evening Kick-off Meeting: sets the stage for the coming week, and provides a progress report on work to-date.

Daytime Open Houses: provide great opportunities for community groups, residents, the business community and others to interact with the planning team by expressing their ideas, plans, and concerns. Drop in any time!

Evening Wrap-up Meetings: will summarize all of the input received during the previous four days and offer another opportunity for an interactive discussion with other stakeholders and the MOVEPGH Team.  MOVEPGH Project info can be found at www.planpgh.com/movepgh.
