Officially incorporated as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2008, our first staff member, executive director, Tracey Evans, was hired in 2010. During the same year, the WCDC moved into a centrally-located office at 1001 Wood St., at the corner of Wood St. and Penn Ave., in Wilkinsburg’s Central Business District.
Our office has and continues to serve as a one-stop resource center for businesses, developers, and community residents.
Over the past five years, we have hired three additional full-time staff members, and have worked with hundreds of volunteers, partners, and supporters to further and fulfill our mission to promote the revitalization of Wilkinsburg through business & residential development; organizational & individual civic leadership; and ethnic & cultural diversity.
