Vacant Spaces Become Vibrant Places


n 2012-13, we worked with local writers and a photographer to document how the Vacant Property Recovery Program (VPRP) is being used in Wilkinsburg. Whether expanding a business, creating an art studio, enhancing a green space, or developing affordable housing, the VPRP provides opportunities to turn Wilkinsburg’s vacant spaces into vibrant places.
