This website has been launched in September 2014 by Kate Luxemburg to make public data on Wilkinsburg properties accessible and to provide a forum for discussion about restoring property value that has been reduced by blight.

August 2015 — WordPress is the platform for this website. I haven’t become a WordPress power user since I launched this website last year, but I’ve learned enough to appreciate how it works. The keywords above the post titles work as filters– click on a keyword– such as “Borough Govt and Services” and the filter will present only the posts with that keyword. Standard Windows document search — Ctrl-F (find) — works through the set of posts presented by the filter. To return to the main page without the filter in effect, click on the website’s name at the top of the page, WilkinsburgUpdate.
