Overview

Pittsburgh’s riverfronts are booming. With rapid changes, how can our rivers continue to balance a diverse mix of uses? What should new development look like? How can new development and existing uses help improve the City’s air and water quality? To help us answer these questions, we’ve invited five other U.S. cities to share lessons they’ve learned from their own efforts to improve their waterfronts. Join us for an evening of open conversation and inspiring ideas to help shape the future of our own riverfronts
