Cities are comprised of neighborhoods varying in their socio-economic status, especially Pittsburgh. Each year a city magazine is sure to devote an issue to ranking neighborhoods. However, neighborhoods, like cities, can see their fortunes rise and fall. Case in point, the South Hills neighborhoods of Allentown and Beltzhoover.

Last month Jason Kambitsis, Executive Director of the Mt. Washington CDC, and Aaron Sukenik, executive director of the Hilltop Alliance developed a five-year plan detailing how these communities can capitalize on their assets to attract new residents and economic development.
