As Solicitor for the City of Pittsburgh, Dan Regan was asked to improve communities in the City. And he did, house by house, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood. Partnering with District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala, Jr., they created the City’s Nuisance Property Task Force (NPTF).
In its first few years, the NPTF took action against more than 100 problem properties throughout the City, putting an end to criminal and nuisance activity at locations including the “killing fields” in Homewood, Reed Roberts in the Hill District, and Constance Street on the North Side. The NPTF stands out as an example of Dan’s commitment to public service and helping people.
