She is The Night!

Oct 16, 2016

Yes! Bwah-hah-hah-hah!  Well actually, no she’s not a vampire, but to celebrate Halloween we had a visit from the Nighttime Economy Coordinator of the City of Pittsburgh.  Wait what - that’s a thing?  Yes, it is.  The mission of the NTC is to retain and grow the economic value of the social and nighttime economy while effectively preventing and addressing nuisance activities, managing public safety risks, and alleviating quality of life impacts.  Some of the NTC’s goals and responsibilities include helping neighborhoods with both residential and commercial activity to achieve peaceful and mutually

beneficial co-existence; helping hospitality business operators to achieve consistent compliance through increased education, increasing the efficiency of city government processes related to business development, regulation and enforcement; advising the Mayor and City Council on social and nighttime economy, and reviewing and proposing relevant policy and legislation.  Presented in conjunction with the student chapter of the International City/County Management Association and the Heinz Career Center.
