|- The communities with a view -
If you have ever seen an artistic photo of the city of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (USA), chances are that it was taken from our neighborhood. Click here to enlarge up the picture in the upper right, a snap shot taken from our West End Overlook. Not only is our view of downtown superlative, we can be there in 5 minutes during rush hour (and its only 15-20 minutes to the airport)!
Even greater than our view, is that our neighborhood still has the traditional Pittsburgh community atmosphere. Of course this is partly because of Pittsburgh's unique geography, and construction, which are the foundations of its communities. However, this is enhanced in our neighborhood by the fact that most of our residents were born here.
One of the best examples of how much our residents care, is our West End Elliott Citizens Council (WEECC). This web site is provided as part of this Citizen's organization, to provide calendar, history, and other resources to help everyone know our community, and help our residents stay involved in key aspects of our community.
Who are we?
The WEECC is a community oriented organization dedicated to the improvement and enrichment of the West End and Elliott neighborhoods, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
The goals of WEECC are to promote growth and development, to actively involve all citizens in the area, to cooperate with any group which will work for the betterment of the communities, and to administer funds for educational and charitable purposes.
Every member is a volunteer, dedicated to making our communities a better place to live. We have no paid staff, no paid officers, and our board of directors remains uncompensated. Our officers are elected for one year terms and our board members are elected for a three year term.
We are you, the community. We are your spokesperson, working for you and elected by you. We are funded by you. We are your neighbor, and those who work in our communities. Together we stand, depending on each other for support and ideas to make our communities some place truly special.
Our organization was founded 1966, and its history is here.
