Pretty Up Beechview is a community group dedicated to maintaining and beautifying the neighborhood of Beechview through:
- Litter clean-ups
- Dumpsite clean-ups
- Stewardship of the Beechview Community Garden
- Nature trail maintenance
The neighborhood of Beechview has weathered a generation of real estate neglect, especially along its business corridor in vacant lots and untended public spaces. As new Pittsburghers and longtime residents work toward plans for Beechview’s future, control of blight is crucial to the growth of the neighborhood.
Through our efforts and in partnership with other community organizations, it is our goal to create a sense of neighborhood environmental stewardship for all Beechview residents.
As our projects and membership grow, grant funding and individual donations will go a long way in securing supplies for each project. And more importantly, we’ll be able to do larger projects that promote our mission to increase community involvement that makes for a cleaner and greener Beechview. Examples of our growth include PUB acting as stewards of the Beechview Community Garden and the conversion of a blighted, vacant lot on Beechview Ave, part of the main business corridor, into a public garden park.
