Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee

Mission

Due to SHUC’s interest and commitment to multi-modal transportation, SHUC created a Neighborhood Bicycle-Pedestrian Committee in 2017 to ensure that our streets, sidewalks, and paths are safe and mutually respectful, with enhanced visibility and usability, for all users – pedestrians, bicyclists, bus riders, and motorists. We continue to work with Pittsburgh District 5 and District 8 Council Members, the Department of Mobility & Infrastructure (DOMI), and other municipal authorities to ensure that Squirrel Hill is an integral participant, along with the Greater Pittsburgh bicycling-pedestrian community, in all planning and policy considerations regarding street safety and usage by authorities in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and the region.

Current Priorities

Get Involved!

We welcome and encourage comments and suggestions on the above priorities and tools.  They can be posted in the Committee’s Facebook group. Join the Facebook group for information on planned events and for updates on our priorities.

Committee meetings are held bi-monthly, on the second Thursday of the given month, at 6:30-8:00 PM, at the Squirrel Hill Jewish Community Center.  Meeting notice with agenda is sent out about a week in advance of each meeting.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings are being conducted virtually.  Any change in this meeting format will be posted on this page and in our Facebook group.

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.
