Councilman
R. DANIEL LAVELLE

Thirteen neighborhoods are represented in Dan Lavelle’s District 6, nine of which are minority communities, including the Hill District and, across the Allegheny River, Manchester and Perry South. More than $770 million in bank loans was approved in this district over the thirteen-year period, 2007 to 2019, just 6.5% of the citywide total. 

 

Councilman Lavelle also represents Downtown Pittsburgh (Central Business District), which saw more than $380 million in home loans between 2007 and 2020.  In contrast, just up the Hill from Downtown, in Bedford Dwellings (which includes a number of public housing units), only 12 loans for $344,000 were approved by lenders, the lowest dollar amount of any minority community in the city.
