Dream Dormont – 2013 Comprehensive Plan

2014 Annual Award Winner – Daniel Burnham Award for  a Comprehensive Plan
Awarded to the Borough of Dormont, Interface Studio, Sam Schwartz Engineering, Duane Morris Government Strategies

Dream Dormont grew out of a desire by officials to redefine the borough and set a fresh approach for the future. The plan is definitely fresh in its look and ideas. It recommends capitalizing on affordable, small-town living, working, and shopping only 15 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh via the “T”; rethinking streets as public spaces; and using creative new parking options and green infrastructure. Public input events attended by over 200 people were held at a historic theater and offered a fun way to discuss the borough’s issues. The plan paints the new Dormont as a place steeped in historic charm that embraces the next generation and progressive ideas
