BikePGH Business Network Meetup: Transportation & Affordable Development
Pittsburgh is onto something big, but how are these pieces working in concert to provide a foundation on which to build a better Pittsburgh? BikePGH is bringing together some of the people behind the initiatives to discuss their goals, synergies and contribution to a more walkable, bikeable, affordable Pittsburgh.
Matt Barron from the Heinz Endowments and Daniel Barrett from the Mayor’s Office will share about the Smart City Application and how it encourages Pittsburgh’s affordability for all. Linda Metropulos, Director of Housing and Neighborhood Development at ActionHousing and member of the Affordable Housing Task Force, will discuss how affordable housing is created and protected in walkable/bikeable communities. And Corey Layman from the Department of City Planning will present about how zoning regulations provide the necessary structure that ensures equitable neighborhoods and shapes complete streets.
BikePGH invites you and your colleagues to join us for their presentations at DeepLocal’s Strip District office.

It is crucial that we speak up in support of improved transportation and affordable housing investment. Please be sure to attend the City of Pittsburgh’s Capital Budget Deliberative Community Forum on Tuesday June 21 to advocate for budget commitments to these issues.
