Call for Nominations for the Newest Board Member of the Pittsburgh Land Bank

The Land Bank is looking for a new board member and we need your help!

The mission of the Pittsburgh Land Bank is to return unproductive real property to beneficial reuse, through an equitable, transparent, and public process, revitalize neighborhoods to strengthen the City’s tax base and support socially and economically diverse communities.

The Board of Directors of the Pittsburgh Land Bank understand and accept the value of diversity. We are committed to ensuring communities affected by unproductive land have substantial and meaningful involvement in Land Bank decisions and strongly inform the governance, structure, and operations of the Pittsburgh Land Bank. The new board Member will fill a community representative seat on the Board and be formally elected by the presently seated Board of Directors.

Please nominate someone to help us advance our mission. Completion of the form takes less than 10 minutes. There is no limit to the number of nominations any one person can make. Self-nominations are accepted. Click this link or copy paste the following URL into your browser:
