Drawing of new Wightman Park design, including playground and green infrastructure
This redesign of Wightman Park is one of the projects funded by Pittsburgh’s 2020 Capital Budget.

Is there a road in Pittsburgh whose potholes drive you crazy? An intersection that feels unsafe? A street that needs a bike lane? A playground that’s a bit run-down?

If you answered yes to any of those questions (or even if you didn’t), the City of Pittsburgh wants to hear from you! The city’s 2021 Capital Budget Survey is available until June 19.

The Capital Budget is used to determine spending on projects (as opposed to day-to-day operations). This year’s Capital Budget includes (in no particular order):

  • Flood control projects
  • “Complete Streets” upgrades (incl. bike/pedestrian infrastructure)
  • Street resurfacing
  • Trail development
  • Capital improvements to the Bob O’Connor Golf Course
  • Renovation of Wightman Park (pictured above)
  • Enhancing Pittsburgh’s housing stock
  • Small business development funds
  • New firefighting equipment
  • Replacing security cameras

Fill out the city’s 2021 Capital Budget Survey by June 19 so that your voice can be heard in this process!
