A Great Place to Live and Work
Ross Township is a commercial center and residential community, located in the North Hills, just minutes north of downtown Pittsburgh. Ross Township strives to support an established community fostered in unity, family, and civic pride. While the community strives to provide a high quality of life for all its members, the standards, ideals, and traditions will create a superior educational system and residential living environment.
Our School District is one of the best in the state. Ross is a great place to call home for your growing family.
Throughout the workplace, programs, meetings, and events, Ross is consciously aware of the impact of decisions upon the environment. For meetings, we have entirely replaced plastic bottles with glass cups, a more sustainable method and have cut our plastic waste with that action. We arrange programs properly to make use of our facility in the most practical way. Throughout the workplace there are many reminders on why recycling is important and the importance if eating properly with exercise. During events, there is a Sustainable Table with information for residents-- so keep an eye out for it next time you're at one our events!
Ross Township is an open and welcoming community, which prides itself in supporting social, cultural, and economic diversity. The links below exemplify the Township's passion for diversity through an annual assessment of municipal boards, employees, volunteers, and committees. Moreover, Ross Township has many unique programs, clubs, and activities specifically to encourage and support the growth and diversification of our neighborhood.
Ross Township regularly conducts sexual harassment and diversity training with its employees. Please see the link below for an annual report on progress in creating a more diverse workforce.
