All throughout the city one can find evidence of renovation and reclamation, driven by affordable real estate situated in reinvigorated neighborhoods. Aliquippa possesses a strong family and community feel, being home to a robust nonprofit sector, various civic organizations, and numerous vibrant and diverse churches. Equally central to the vitality of the city is its rich and varied ethnic heritage, demonstrated by its various clubs, festivals, and ongoing gatherings. At the heart of Aliquippa’s community experience is its schools, comprised of recently renovated, state of the art facilities both at the elementary and secondary levels.

Central to Aliquippa’s story is its people and its leaders. Beginning with innovative leadership at the city level, and extending throughout the community, principled and committed citizens are working hard to ensure an even brighter future for Aliquippa and its residents. Whether addressing the need for updated code enforcement, overseeing city infrastructure updates, or seeking out new and innovative ways of growing Aliquippa’s capacity to move forward, city officials and civic leaders are working hard to ensure that Aliquippa’s best days are yet ahead.
