Land Care for the URA
Amani has always valued the landscaping and maintenance of the Hill District's community blighted areas. In 2015, we partnered with the Urban Redevelopment Authority to address this need. As a founding member of the Clean Green Hill Initiative, Amani has maintained a landscape and vacant lot maintenance program. We are currently a partner with the City of Pittsburgh and the City Cuts program as well as the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) Land Care Program. Our primary objective is to inspire and create a new public perception of the Hill District community by creating landscape and regularly maintained parcels where vacant lots have become overgrown with weeds and debris.
