Action Alert: Make Parks A Priority In The City's 2018 Capital Budget

June 9, 2017 by Pittsburgh Parks

How would you use $50,000 to improve your favorite park places?


Of the 158 public parks in the City of Pittsburgh, only five receive dedicated Regional Asset District (RAD) funding for projects such as restroom improvements, pavilion repair, and accessibility enhancements. This funding, which amounts to one-half of 1% of the Allegheny County Sales and Use Tax, is divided among these five city parks, other county and regional parks, public libraries and many of Pittsburgh's incredible cultural amenities.

Right now, you can tell the City of Pittsburgh that your parks should be a higher funding priority. Submit an idea on behalf of your favorite park places for the 2018 Capital Budget today.
