Pittsburgh Policy Document Collection

The following is just a small collection of documents I have referenced, collected or have been asked to provide in the past. They are generally sorted into geographic focus areas: 1) City of Pittsburgh, 2) Allegheny County, 3) the Pittsburgh Region, 4) other subregions and 5) general reference documents. Beyond that they are in no particular order (yet) and cover a broad range of topics pertaining to public policy.

For a more specific set of references pertaining to Regionalism and Local Government Fragmentation in the Pittsburgh Region click here.

All are PDF files unless otherwise noted and several are relatively large files (over 1mb). If you have questions on any of these documents, contact me at:
