Councilman
BOBBY WILSON

Councilman Bobby Wilson’s District 1 represents 14 North Side neighborhoods, including the high-income Brighton Heights, as well as the city’s lowest-income census tract, Northview Heights (which contains a large public housing community run by the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh). District 1 saw just over $1 billion in loan dollars approved between 2007 and 2020, nine percent of the citywide total. 

 

This district also represents wide contrasts in lending:  While more than 2,400 loans for $230 million were approved in Brighton Heights between 2007 and 2019, just 12 loans for $846,000 were approved in Northview Heights over the same period, the second-lowest loan dollar amount of any neighborhood in the city.
