South Pittsburgh is special for so many reasons, and one favorite is our plentitude of parks and greenspace. After hearing many concerns from residents about the park's condition, we pushed public works to refurbish the playground with new play surface and equipment repairs.
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
One of the most complex issues we deal with is vacant or ill-maintained properties. In Bon Air, we've worked with neighbors to address several such properties. Partnering with the Bureau of Building Inspection, we've successfully enforced building and property maintenance codes, and held banks and irresponsible property owners accountable to mowing the grass or fixing unsightly homes in their possession. We want people to be proud of their neighborhoods, and keeping them clean is an essential piece of that effort.
