The City of Pittsburgh’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) has released its new Bike(+) Plan!
DOMI uses the term “Bike(+)” to mean lightweight, low-speed vehicles without internal combustion engines, including traditional bicycles, kick-scooters, and skateboards, but also electric versions of those vehicles and other personal mobility devices. This inclusion is particularly important in neighborhoods like Squirrel Hill with a lot of steep streets, which may make pedal-assist bicycles a more appealing option for many users.
Squirrel Hill Map
Based in part on the Squirrel Hill Bike Plan developed by SHUC a few years ago, here is the map of DOMI’s proposed bike routes for Squirrel Hill:
We are excited to see the implementation of this Bike(+) Plan, and we hope that it will make Squirrel Hill a safer place for commuters, recreational cyclists, and all other road users!
The Squirrel Hill Business District in collaboration with Pittsburgh City Council hosted a highly successful National Night Out event. The community came together in full force, making it a memorable evening of unity, fun, and engagement.
Preserving, Improving, and Celebrating the Quality of Life in Squirrel Hill
For over fifty years, the Coalition has been an active and important link in the community. It has served as a sounding board for new ideas, as well as a “watchdog” in the areas of public safety, education, residential quality, the business district, and parks and open space. With its focus on the quality of life in the 14th Ward, SHUC continues to monitor activities and future developments in the community through a range of standing committees.
