Allegheny Land Trust (ALT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit land conservation organization in the Pittsburgh Region. Protecting more than 2,500 acres of green space in Allegheny and Washington Counties, ALT works to protect land of significant value to our region’s unique scenic landscape, biodiversity, and water quality. Additionally, ALT protects land to improve quality of life for current and future generations by offering recreational and educational opportunities. One of our strategic initiatives is to support urban greening efforts through researching new land protection programs and opportunities in this area of study.
ALT is working on a Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) Pilot Study to demonstrate the benefits of permitting the Transfer of Development Rights in fully urban contexts.
