You Can Help Re-shape Wilkinsburg’s Business District


Wilkinsburg Business District Charrette
May 11-15, 2009
Hosanna House

Wilkinsburg is re-imagining its Business District in a week-long charrette, scheduled for May 11-15, at the Hosanna House, 807 Wallace Ave, Wilkinsburg. The charrette is a collaborative process that harnesses the talents and energies of all interested parties to create and support a visionary plan that can be implemented. Residents, business owners, and consumers will be challenged to take a fresh approach to the 18-block commercial area and discover its unique position within the growing Penn Avenue corridor. The charrette will bring the community together to consider the nature of public space, land use, sustainability and market conditions. Concepts plans and sketches produced at evening workshops will be on display daily. The attached invitation from Mayor John Thompson provides more charrette specifics. For information on the planning process, please send an e-mail to, or contact the Borough office at (412)244-2900×101
