The City of Pittsburgh is home to 15 historic districts. These districts are set up to preserve, rehabilitate, and continue to use historic buildings. In areas with a historic designation, the Historic Review Commission oversees any potential demolition, addition to, or alteration of the exterior of structures.
The work of the Historic Preservation planners is guided by PreservePGH, the Pittsburgh Cultural Heritage Plan, completed in 2012.
