Wilkinsburg residents have the opportunity to get a referendum on the ballot to decide whether we merge with the City of Pittsburgh.
https://wilkinsburgmerger.org/ was created to provide information and share opportunities for discussion as we approach this important decision.
The information on this site was researched and compiled by a group of Wilkinsburg resident volunteers on the Merger Analysis Committee. From January–May 2021, more than two dozen residents worked together to inventory the kinds of questions and topics they wanted to understand better themselves. They researched the best answers they could find to help fellow residents learn more about how a merger with the City of Pittsburgh could affect our community.
