Uptown Partners of Pittsburgh is a community-based organization of residents, institutions, and business owners–working together to build a vibrant community. –Mission Statement
We achieve our goals by pursuing an action plan that ensures the development of a clean, safe, green, and equitable neighborhood; rebuilds a mixed-income population by reclaiming vacant, blighted properties and encouraging new residential development; attracts new neighborhood retail and commercial business, while supporting existing business owners; fosters green, quality design in all development projects; and creates an environment where the arts flourish and are integrated into the urban landscape.
Currently Uptown Partners is working with the City of Pittsburgh and community stakeholders in a unique public/private partnership on the Uptown Eco-Innovation District. This creates a first-ever City model that deploys best practices for a neighborhood that is “resilient, vibrant, resource efficient, and just”.
