Excerpts Regarding Preservation in Pittsburgh from Changing Places: Rebuilding Community in the Age of Sprawl
Richard Moe and Carter Wilkie
Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, 1999
Landmarks has reprinted, with permission, a portion of Chapter 4, “New Tools for Older Neighborhoods.” The chapter focuses on Pittsburgh and the urban renewal policies of the 1960s that led to the formation of the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation. This is an excellent summary of Landmarks’ work and includes mention of the Revolving Loan Fund, inner-city revitalization (particularly in Manchester), Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group, and Station Square.
