South West Pittsburgh CDC

The South West Pittsburgh is a new CDC founded by Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith. The CDC has brought together 14 out of our 15 neighborhoods, excluding Mt. Washington and Duquesne Heights, which are currently working with the MWCDC. This marks the first time the 14 neighborhoods are working together. Through several committees the CDC is making District 2 a stronger place to live, work, play and invest!
