  • Brentwood Park Initiative: Phase III of this highly anticipated project is under way! Newly constructed stadium bleachers are coming soon.

     

    Roadway Projects: Per the approved five-year street repair plan, sections of Pyramid, Glendale, and Bellecrest Avenue have been reconstructed. The Borough has contracted with the City of Pittsburgh to resurface the portion of Churchview Avenue that abuts both municipalities.  Additionally, GIS mapping software is presently being used to analysis parking data on our most crowded thoroughfares. 

     

    Zoning Ordinance: The entirely overhauled zoning code is available for view here. It is designed to preserve the community's current aesthetics while concurrently increasing opportunities for businesses.  To further spur development and to improve transit connections, a potential zoning overlay district for the Route 51 corridor is being assessed.

     

    Recreational Programming: Brentwood Borough is pleased to offer an array of interesting and exciting programs for both children and adults. Click here to find out more!
