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 Pittsburgh Land Bank was created via local ordinance in the Spring of 2014. It operates citywide within the municipal boundaries of the City of Pittsburgh. It is governed by a 9-member board of directors and is the local government agency responsible for the recycling of distressed properties back to productive use.
The PLB is currently staffed (link to staff section of AboutUs/Board & Staff page) via a contract for administrative services with the Real Estate Department at the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh.
