We would like to invite you to attend our General Membership meeting on Wednesday October 9th at 6:30p. Each year, Lawrenceville United hosts two (2) General Membership meetings, in the spring and fall to report on the work that has been completed, the work that is planned, and to engage the membership around priorities for moving forward. LU is a resident-driven organization and we hope that you will join us to discuss those important issues facing our community now and how we can all work together to address them. These meetings are also a great time to come to get caught up on development projects, or other community happenings and updates.
If you are not a member in current standing, you can renew, or sign-up for a new membership, at the meeting. It is $5.00 for an annual membership, or $35.00 for a lifetime membership.
Your priorities are our work-plan so please join us so that we can move forward with a shared vision in protecting and improving the quality of life in Lawrenceville for all residents and stakeholders.

On September 21st, meet our team in the parking lot of Goodwill Indistries (118 52nd Street Pgh PA 15201) from 9am – 11am for a morning of cleaning up our neighborhood.

Neighborhoods all across the city will have competing clean-ups to see who can pick up the most trash. The competition will be judged by the Clean Pittsburgh Commission – there will be prizes for most trash collected as well as weirdest item found and other surprises.
