South Side Community Council is working to revitalize Esser Plaza to be a welcoming, open space where the community can gather. We have partnered with Engineers without Borders Pittsburgh Chapter to move the project forward an enhanced design, construction documents, and required approvals.

The design is moving forward a concept design that was completed with input from the community, residents, businesses, and other organizations serving the South Side.
