West End Elliott Citizens Council

 
 
  Elliott is a small, hilly neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's West End Region. Elliott is represented on the Pittsburgh City Council by the council member for District 2 (West Neighborhoods), and uses the zip code 15220.

The neighborhood's predominant land area was annexed to the city of Pittsburgh in two pieces, the southern half in 1906 and the northern half in 1921 after being an independent borough for a short time. Elliott was once a thriving community full of local businesses. In the latter half of the twentieth century, the neighborhood began on a downward progression upon the closing of several housing communities throughout Pittsburgh. The continued emigration of residents to Pittsburgh's then developing suburbs is also a suggested cause of the decline. An active community group, the West End Elliott Citizens Council, is located on Chartiers Avenue and is working to help reverse this deterioration. The Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire houses Engine 30 and Truck 30 in Elliott.
West End Village (originally named Temperanceville) is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's west city area. It has a zip code of 15220, and has representation on Pittsburgh City Council by the council member for District 2 (West Neighborhoods).
The neighborhood lies in a small valley south of the Ohio River and less than a mile from downtown Pittsburgh. It was founded in 1837 as Temperanceville, and was annexed to the City of Pittsburgh in 1872. Today it features a business district that has attracted renewed interest as a design district, featuring businesses like the James Gallery, Ceramiche Tiles, Caldwell's, Jacob Evans Kitchen and Bath, and Artifacts, among many others. To support these businesses, the Urban Redevelopment Authority added the West End Village as a Mainstreet Pittsburgh district in 2009.[2] The West End Bridge crosses the Ohio River and connects the neighborhood to the North Side of the city. Carson St. connects it to Station Square and the South Side to the east, and the borough of McKees Rocks to the west.
