City of Pittsburgh Council District 6
DEPARTMENT OF CITY PLANNING TO HOST CONSERVATION DISTRICT WORKSHOP
The city of Pittsburgh is currently conducting a study on the viability of conservation district for the city as an alternative to traditional historic districts. A conservation is a zoning designation that applies tools to address issues or promote specific neighborhood objectives. It typically implements tools to promote compatible new construction and additions. The focus is generally on maintaining a preferred neighborhood character as seen from the street or sidewalk. Unlike a historic district, a conservation district does not protect specific existing building features.
The Department of City Planning will be having a workshop on conservation districts on Tuesday, July, 23rd at 6:00 pm in the 1st floor conference room located at 200 Ross Street in Downtown.
This workshop will be an opportunity to inform residents and neighborhood stakeholders about historic conservation districts.
