Beginning in 2011, PCRG, in partnership with the Urban Land Institute-Pittsburgh District, began hosting an Annual Community Development Summit. Each year, the Summit features exciting keynote speakers and engaging breakout sessions designed to cover the myriad of issues that surround community development. Sessions from past years have covered organizational development, community planning, land recycling, affordable housing, and transit-oriented development to name a few.

The Summit is a truly regional event, drawing speakers and participants not only from PCRG member organizations and neighborhoods, but also from surrounding cities such as Cleveland, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Erie, Philadelphia, and many more.

PCRG strives to make the Summit accessible to everyone who is passionate about rebuilding and sustaining healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities – from community development professionals and elected officials to neighborhood volunteers.  We hope that you will join us in 2016 for the 6th Annual Community Development Summit.
