The West End Alliance is a new CDC founded by Councilwoman Theresa Kail-Smith. The Alliance has brought together 14 out of our 16 neighborhoods, excluding Mt. Washington and Duquesne Heights, which are currently working with the MWCDC. This alliance marks the first time the 14 neighborhoods are working together. Through several committees the alliance is making District 2 a stronger place to live, work, play and invest!
