2001 TriBorough Joint Zoning Map 8-14-2009


In 2001, the Borough of Bellevue entered into the Tri-Boro Comprehensive Planning initiative with Avalon and Ben Avon.


An essential component

of this collaborative effort of residents, appointed by their Councils to serve on

the Tri-Borough Joint Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, is the Multi-Municipal Comprehensive Plan adopted by each of the respective municipalities in 2004.


The steering committee continued work on the Tri-Borough zoning ordinance and the zoning map to provide for regulating land use in all three municipalities.


In August 2009, the municipalities of Bellevue, and Ben Avon each adopted the Avalon-Bellevue-Ben Avon Joint Zoning Ordinance  together with the Zoning Map.  Avalon adopted the plan in September 2009.


The Joint Planning Commission (JPC) continues to meet on a monthly basis to address relevant planning and zoning issues  of concern to the three municipalities.

In November of 2008, the Borough Council established an Economic Development Committee to create a five-year Strategic Plan for the Borough.   The Mission- By 2014, Bellevue will leverage its unique small-town ambiance and city proximity by bridging tradition and progressiveness to be the community of choice in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area.


This plan was adopted by BIG (Bellevue Initiative for Growth) which also endorses "the best in the 'Burgh - Bellevue.  The group initiated Marketing, Business Development and Events Planning Committees to further the cause.

Bellevue Borough Municipal Building Renovation


Bellevue Borough Building Renovation

Final Stages of the Bellevue Borough Renovation Project

As a prelude to the major overhaul, new windows were installed in the Borough Building in 2008.  The full-blown renovation of the Bellevue Borough Building began in June of 2009.


Contractors were on schedule to complete the work in October 2009. 


Clicking the images on the left provides a progressive sneak peek of the project.  Photographic documentation was provided on a weekly basis.  Early in October 2009 finishing touches were being applied.  Temporary offices were abandoned, makeshift offices were occupied and new furnishings were en route to complete the project.


In November 2009, the furnishings were installed.  The third floor meeting room was officially designated as the "Rosemary Heflin Council Chambers" in honor of our esteemed civil servant.  The Open House and ribbon-cutting ceremony occurred on December 4, 2009.



Military Service Wall of Honor at AGH Suburban Campus


Military Service Wall of Honor -AGH Suburban Campus, Bellevue, PA

In observance of Memorial Day and in celebration of Independence Day, AGH Suburban Campus installs a Neighborhood Honor Wall to honor all who have served in the Military.  In 2009, the Neighborhood Honor Wall was moved from its previous location in the cafeteria to the Gift Corner, making the display more visible to the general community.


Anyone who had someone serving in the military, past or present, whom they would like to honor, submitted a photo and available information including Name, Rank, Branch of Service, Dates Served, the specific conflict and where stationed.


If the service person had given their life in the service of their country, families provided the details of the circumstances, so that this ultimate sacrifice could be highlighted. Photos were accepted on a continuing basis.  Set up began early in May to provide a display in honor of Memorial Day.  Photos continue to be added as they are received.


The display remains on view through August.  PHOTOS CANNOT BE RETURNED.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND ORIGINAL PHOTOS.  Photos may be delivered in person to the Gift Corner, located in the lobby of Allegheny General Hospital Suburban Campus, Monday Friday 8:00am 4:00-pm or Saturday 8:00am-2:00pm.  Photos may be mailed to:  Allegheny General Hospital Suburban Campus, 100 South Jackson Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15202.
