Good All Over

Wilkinsburg: Good All Over, is a campaign to feature positive news and happenings using the hashtag #GoodAllOver on social media. Besides the WCDC, council people, the school district, businesses, and individuals have adopted the hashtag to promote Wilkinsburg.

Good All Over has since grown into a comprehensive branding initiative. In May 2017, we installed Good All Over banners and window decals throughout our business district. We will continue building on this initiative through small business advertisements, additional window displays, merchandise, and more.

Streetscape Improvements

Our Streetscape Improvement program focuses on a clean and vibrant business district. Visit Wilkinsburg’s business district today, and you are likely to encounter far less litter than you might have a few years ago. We have been installing litter receptacles throughout Wilkinsburg to combat litter and present a clean, attractive business district. Over 40 litter receptacles have been installed so far. The receptacles and other street furnishings were fabricated right on Penn Avenue by Wilkinsburg-based metal shop, Technique AP.

Public Safety

Crime prevention, safety awareness, and improved enforcement are important to Wilkinsburg’s community health. The WCDC is working towards collaborative data and advocacy efforts to help guide public safety improvements throughout the Central Business District.
