The Neighborhood Improvement Team (NIT) is comprised of City staff representing various departments who are dedicated to improving our neighborhoods. It is a partnership between the City and its residents that is based on the belief that we can do a better job solving problems together. The NIT holds neighborhood meetings throughout the City to listen, document, and help resolve citizen’s issues and concerns.

NIT Program Overview

In January 2004, the City started an aggressive campaign to improve the quality of life in targeted neighborhoods by improving communication between the citizens and the City government. The result was the creation of Pittsburg’s Neighborhood Improvement Team (NIT).

Departments, which once individually responded to neighborhood issues, now work together to solve these issues and produce noticeable results. The coordination and dedication of these City resources (especially staff time) create permanent, positive change in the various neighborhoods around the City.

From neighborhood cleanups to fencing and street tree programs, the NIT has delivered amazing results since its inception. The program has:

  • Increased citizen responsibility
  • Enhanced neighborhood pride
  • Improved community relations and
  • Increased citizen engagement

The NIT has embarked on many successful projects/programs that were all established based on residents concerns and priorities.
