Mission of EDS

The mission of Economic Development South is to strengthen our business and residential communities by building innovative partnerships.

Thriving by commUNITY.

Economic Development South is a multi-municipal, corridor-based community development corporation that encompasses a significant portion of the South Pittsburgh/South Hills region of Allegheny County.

Our coalition of communities have come together to positively impact our shared commercial corridors – Route 51 (Saw Mill Run Blvd.) and Brownsville Road, most notably. This approach is the thread that binds our communities together – based on a shared interest and benefit in the redevelopment and revitalization of these commercial and transportation corridors.
