Uptown Task Force

Uptown Task Force

A collaboration of Pittsburgh community partners to create the world’s first EcoInnovation District

The Uptown Task Force is a partnership of organizations, institutions, community groups, property owners and public agencies focused on implementing the Uptown/West Oakland EcoInnovation District Plan to improve and enhance the Uptown neighborhood in the City of Pittsburgh.

The Uptown/West Oakland EcoInnovation District (EID) in Pittsburgh is the first of its kind.  It’s a groundbreaking initiative that combines the goals of both Eco-Districts and Innovation Districts that have helped to positively transform communities across the country.  The EID is an opportunity to identify the ways in which redevelopment can improve the environment, support the needs of existing residents, and expand entrepreneurship and job growth.
