Upper St. Clair Designated as 2018 Banner Community

USC Administration - Wednesday, March 28, 2018

County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and the Allegheny League of Municipalities (ALOM) announced that the Township of Upper St. Clair is one of 55 municipalities that have been designated as 2018 Banner Communities. The program recognizes municipalities committed to prudent fiscal management, transparency, accountability, and proactive communications to engage community stakeholders.

The Township of Upper St. Clair is one of 16 municipalities recognized for being part of the Banner Community Program since its inception in 2012.

"This designation highlights our commitment to sustainability, intergovernmental cooperation, professional development, emergency preparedness, and most of all, our efforts to connect with residents through the USC TODAY Magazine, our website, and social media," said Assistant Township Manager Mark Mansfield.

"We are delighted to see this tremendous program continue to grow and to recognize so many of our great municipalities this year," said Fitzgerald. "Local government officials are critical to the success of this region. They are more likely to know what issues matter most to local residents and how resources can be used most effectively in their area. Congratulations to the officials in our Banner Communities who represent their constituents so well, and thank you for all of your hard work in making this county a better place to live and work."

The announcement was made during a press event and ceremony at the River Club on Friday, March 23.

"The growth of the Banner Community Program throughout the last six years is a testament to the fine work being conducted in local government throughout our region," said ALOM Chairman Dennis Watson. "The record participation in the program for 2018 clearly demonstrates a commitment to best practices in governance by our municipal stakeholders. I look forward to the continued success and future enhancements of the Banner Community Program in the years to come."

The Allegheny League of Municipalities is a 501(c)6 nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster local government in Allegheny County and southwestern Pennsylvania by educating elected officials, delivering essential resources, and advocating for sound policy and legislation.
