WHO WE ARE
South Pittsburgh Development Corporation (SPDC) is an all-volunteer community development organization in Brookline and was established in 1992. The organization exists to serve the neighborhood and to ensure that Brookline is a great place to live, shop, worship, raise your children, and retire. The organization is made up of 10 board members and has a membership of 75 residents. Many of these members are your neighbors, your friends, and local business owners. The organization is working to promote positive energy and projects in our neighborhood so that we can remain the third largest neighborhood in Pittsburgh and continue to support the 90+ businesses that support our community.
