About Us

Registered Community Organization

Development Activities Meetings (DAMs)

Fundamentally, with our work as a community organization The Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition communicates to the public about development proposals and hosts public meetings to discuss them.  We are now taking on additional responsibilities to serve Squirrel Hill residents and stakeholders as a Registered Community Organization (RCO) with the Department of City Planning.  The RCO designation formally requires community engagement as part of the city’s development approval process.  According to the RCO legislation, our responsibilities as an RCO include: establishing orderly means for public input, reporting to the city about the process, and fostering communication between the community and city departments.  SHUC will use this page of our website to provide information about projects and request feedback.

Because there are so many projects happening at one time, we track all current projects below. We update entries as we have new information. Please check out the calendar for updates.

The Squirrel Hill Communication strategy is fundamental to our work as an RCO and is available to view here.

Preserving, Improving, and Celebrating the Quality of Life in Squirrel Hill

For forty-nine 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.
