Meet the BEN Tri-Boro

The BEN Tri-Boro is collaborative formed by residents and invested partners to the Braddock, East Pittsburgh, and North Braddock boroughs to put together a community plan that focuses on revitalization and reinvestment in the Boroughs, business districts and neighborhoods.

We have committed to working together to make significant and sustainable change.

We have committed to working together as an interdependent market that can compete regionally.

We believe that we can only succeed as a collective, we will leverage and support each other's strengths to attract residents, businesses, and visitors; and to bring additional financial and human capital to make change.
