About the Civic Council

The Allegheny West Civic Council was incorporated in 1971 to:

  • coordinate neighborhood services and eliminate duplicate or unnecessary activities
  • identify and make every effort to meet unmet needs;
  • promote public understanding of our needs and resources;
  • serve as a channel for the members to express our thoughts and needs to the larger communities of city, state & nation and serve as an access channel to the people of the neighborhood for other institutions;
  • receive and administer funds exclusively for scientific, education and charitable purposes;
  • improve the economic and social climate of the community by publicizing our needs and goals and assuring that vital services, programs and resources are made available to the community.

Take Part

Any resident, property owner, business owner or organization is eligible to become a voting member in the Civic Council.  More information about membership can be found here.
