PLEASANT HILLS, Oct. 26 – A grant of $2 million has been awarded to Pleasant Hills for construction of a new borough building, state Rep. Nick Pisciottano, D-Allegheny, announced today.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to help bring investments like these back to our community,” Pisciottano said. “This new building will benefit the borough for many years to come, especially local law enforcement.”

Pisciottano specified that the funded project will involve the construction of a new municipal building, plus necessary equipment purchases for the facility. The facility will house:

  • Tax offices for the borough.

  • Several community meeting rooms and a large multipurpose room.

  • A state-of-the-art facility for public safety, prisoner processing and holding, work areas, evidence record storage, equipment storage, and support space to be used by the Pleasant Hills Police Department.

The grant is sourced from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects. RACP projects are state-funded and cannot obtain primary funding under other state programs.
