Community Development Board

The mission of the Department of Community Development is to enhance the viability of the community as a desirable place in which to live and work through sound urban planning practices; housing, human services and economic development activities that will primarily benefit persons of low and moderate income; and by eliminating conditions of slum and blight.

The Department of Community Development is responsible for community and economic development and planning and housing activities for the City of Pittsfield.  It administers the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
