  • Brentwood Park Initiative: Phase III of this highly anticipated project is under way! Newly constructed stadium bleachers are coming soon.

     

    Roadway Projects: Per the approved five-year street repair plan, sections of Pyramid, Glendale, and Bellecrest Avenue have been reconstructed. The Borough has contracted with the City of Pittsburgh to resurface the portion of Churchview Avenue that abuts both municipalities.  Additionally, GIS mapping software is presently being used to analysis parking data on our most crowded thoroughfares. 

     

    Zoning Ordinance: The entirely overhauled zoning code is available for view here. It is designed to preserve the community's current aesthetics while concurrently increasing opportunities for businesses.  To further spur development and to improve transit connections, a potential zoning overlay district for the Route 51 corridor is being assessed.

     

    Recreational Programming: Brentwood Borough is pleased to offer an array of interesting and exciting programs for both children and adults. Click here to find out more!

Sewer Lateral Inspection Ordinance Implemented

 

In order to abate the problem of stormwater breaching the sanitary sewer system, the Borough of Brentwood now requires that a sewer lateral camera inspection be performed at the time of any property transaction. This regulation is in addition to the mandate that a dye test be performed prior to closing. The applicable closing company or attorney must issue a $50 check to cover the cost of the lateral inspection confirmation report. As a result, the new fee for the sale of a single family home is $200, with a $50 surcharge for each additional unit. Please note that a DVD copy of the inspection video must be submitted to the Building Code Official with the written report. All final determinations of repair requirements shall be made by the Borough.

Roadway Project Ensures Infrastructure Sustainability

 

The presence of a well-maintained transportation infrastructure is critical for the economic growth of a municipality. However, the effects of age and weather extremes can take a severe toll on the condition of our roadways. Brentwood Borough Council has demonstrated its commitment to enhancing the state of our streets by approving a comprehensive five-year rehabilitation plan. Although governmental entities are currently facing constrained financial positions, Council acknowledges that further deferring maintenance will only increase the costs of these projects in the future while concurrently compromising safety and efficiency in the present. By assessing the aggregate long term needs of our community, the Borough is able to prioritize projects and utilize best repair practices, which will reduce overall expenses.
