Spending the Night with the Mayor
This month we’re having a neighborhood-centric conversation with Mayor Bill Peduto. He’s traveled throughout the city, hosting a monthly “Mayor’s Night Out” and “Night In,” where anyone can talk with him and his staff in person about neighborhood issues. We’ll get his take on the community feedback he’s been getting, police residency requirements and development of the former Civic Arena site in the Hill District.
What are your biggest neighborhood concerns?

This week the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has printed the first data-driven look at pedestrian safety in Pittsburgh. We'll talk with reporters Andrew McGill and Madeline Conway.
