The Department of City Planning (DCP) developed the Vacant Lot Toolkit as a guide for transforming vacant lots into community assets. The Adopt-A-Lot program has streamlined the process of accessing city-owned land more user friendly in Pittsburgh

  • The Adopt-A-Lot Program has streamlined the process of accessing city-owned vacant lots for food, flower, or rain gardens.
  • The Vacant Lot Toolkit is a resource guide and offers step-by-step instructions and suggestions to help you design your project and complete your Adopt-A-Lot application. This resource has useful information for creating projects on privately owned land, too.
