2022 Capital Budget: Make your voice heard!

The City of Pittsburgh Office of Management and Budget and Office of Community Affairs are collecting community input on the 2022 Capital Budget through an online survey and virtual meetings.

The Capital Budget refers to money that is allocated to acquire or maintain fixed assets, including things like land, buildings, and equipment. The City of Pittsburgh’s Capital Budget includes capital projects that fall under three main projects; Mobility Projects, Community Projects, and Recreation Projects.

PSL Perspective

We believe it is always essential for community members to weigh in on the budgeting process and ensure that the budget reflects community needs and values. We also believe that as park users PSL participants and PUMP members have a unique experience interacting with city fields. We invite all PSL players to submit the following feedback, which we believe is vital to the continued success of the PSL.

  • Equity for distribution of Capital Funds to the fields and communities that need it the most.
    • High Priority: McKinley Field
  • An investment in new field equipment like lawn mowers to ensure all fields across the City can be maintained on a regular basis.
  • An expansion of recycling to all City of Pittsburgh fields.
Community Survey:

All residents are also encouraged to fill out the 2022 Capital Budget Survey by June 18th.
