Scenic Pittsburgh's Programs


At Scenic Pittsburgh, we believe that by leveraging the scenic assets of southwestern Pennsylvania, we can boost this region’s economic success, bolster environmental sustainability, preserve our unique history, and improve the physical and mental health of our residents.

The following are the areas we do work in. Click for in-depth details on each:

  • Zoning and Billboard Advisory and Consultancy
    We reach out to municipalities in our 10-county area to help them defend their scenic resources through zoning, strategic planning, and other legislation

    We propose new scenic byways in our 10-county area and work to have them designated officially, allowing communities to access a wide range of new funding opportunities that support scenic and historic assets
  • Scenic Asset Inventory
    We assist municipalities in our region with figuring out what scenic assets they have and how they can best leverage them to benefit their communities
  • Greenspace Restoration
    We target abandoned and underused potential greenspace and, with regional partners, work to restore it for community use
  • Community Beautification Projects
    We advise and act as project managers for beautification projects
  • Scenic Pittsburgh Awards
    We hold up and celebrate people, places, organizations and businesses that prioritize good design, good development, and scenic beauty

If you have a scenic issue in your community but aren’t sure where to begin, we invite you to get in touch with us. We offer advice to community leaders and residents at no cost and are always looking for new partners in our fight to preserve the beauty of our region.
