About Us

A Great Place to Live & 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 create a superior residential living environment.

School District

Ross Township falls entirely within the North Hills School District

North Hills was recently rated one of the Top 100 schools in the Commonwealth.

Environmentally Friendly

Ross is consciously aware of the impact its decisions have on the environment. For meetings, we have entirely replaced plastic bottles with glass cups, a more sustainable method that has reduced our plastic waste. 

The Township also offers Free Glass Recycling to its residents:

Located at 225 Cemetery Ln. (Public Works)

* Use during daylight hours 
* Glass only –  NO papers or plastics
* Clean/rinse your glass before disposal
* Do not leave bags outside of the container

To reduce the amount of paper the Township uses, we have created an Online Portal for Board of Commissioner's Meeting Agendas. Throughout the workplace, there are many reminders on why recycling is important and the importance of eating properly with exercise. 

A Welcoming Place

Ross Township is an open and welcoming community, which prides itself in supporting social, cultural and economic diversity. Moreover, Ross Township has many unique programs, committees, clubs and activities specifically to encourage and support the growth and diversification of our neighborhood.
