The county initiated the development of this plan in response to concerns about blight issues which were raised during a series of Town Hall Meetings held by the Armstrong County Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2016.|
|In late 2018 and early 2019 several vacant properties were demolished within the boroughs of Leechburg and Kittanning with assistance from the county.|

|Because we recognize the role transportation has in connecting communities and supporting economic development, we coordinate capital improvements ranging in scope from operational and safety improvements to the SR 28 and US 422 corridors to the rehabilitation of municipal owned bridges. We also understand the importance of alternative modes of transportation, and we will continuously work with communities to identify funding opportunities for pedestrian and bicycle improvements.
Uniform Construction Code Group
The Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC), Act 45 of 1999, became law in 2004 and provides uniform standards for new construction and renovations throughout the state. Over 90% of Pennsylvania's 2,562 municipalities have elected to administer and enforce the UCC locally using their own employees or via certified third party agencies (private code enforcement agencies) that they have retained. Thirty-five local municipalities have elected to jointly administer the UCC through participation in the Armstrong County UCC Group. The Group contracts with Bureau Veritas to provide third party inspection services for a set fee schedule. Individuals seeking information on construction requirements or building permits in participating municipalities may contact Bureau Veritas at 724-548-1414 or 866-378-7717.
The Armstrong County Municipal Officials Directory lists all elected and appointed officials in each of the county’s forty five municipalities. The directory also provides contact information for all county officials as well as United States Senators and Congressman and Pennsylvania General Assembly members representing Armstrong County.
