Recap from Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition’s Annual Meeting!
Last week we hosted our annual Community Meeting, the first in-person meeting since 2019! We welcomed guests in JCC’s Levinson Hall and virtually via Zoom. We were honored to host a number of elected officials, partners and community members who updated us on what’s going on in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood.
Thank you so much to our speakers who presented at the meeting:

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.
