Pittsburgh is a beautiful City, but it takes the dedicated work of volunteers to keep it that way.
I am pleased to announce a new program, Redd Up Zone, that will engage volunteers in street beautification and blight reduction. Through this program, businesses and organizations will recruit volunteers to adopt a “Redd Up Zone,” committing to year-round cleanups in a designated area as well as tracking neighborhood maintenance concerns for the City to address. In recognition of their commitment, the City of Pittsburgh will provide street signage that publically acknowledges the groups’ commitment to keeping Pittsburgh litter-free, along with the necessary materials and resources that they need to get the job done.
Litter and illegally dumped materials attract crime, repel economic development in urban areas, and indicate a loss of community pride. Redd Up Zone provides opportunities and support for volunteers to combat blight and beautify their neighborhood in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh.
Thank you to the countless community groups and organizations who already work to keep their neighborhoods and communities clean. I appreciate the precedent that you have set for local residents and I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to join a Pittsburgh-wide effort to keep our streets beautiful.
Redd Up Zone is one of my signature servePGH programs, which promote citizen service to impact local challenges.

I hope that you will consider participating in this program and join me in my effort to “Redd Up” the City of Pittsburgh!
