Welcome to the Rebuilding Clairton Together (RCT) website!
This site is also a great resource about the city of Clairton; who we are, who we were (history), how we function, and what can we do to make things better!
This site was created to help educate the community on what we can do to help our city grow and prosper. By providing you with the tools & knowledge, you along with your neighbors can apply them with your wisdom to benefit the community. Clairton has many Government Positions, Boards, Commission, Authorities & Organizations that were created to help us; RCT was formed to educate the community in how to work with these organizations and each other. We believe in learning and teaching by example. We realize no one person or group has all the answers, but together we can be more effective.
The information on this site is gathered from many sources. Much of it comes from the "City of Clairton Comprehensive Plan" which was developed in assistance of many groups, organizations, and individuals such as the City Council/School District Partnership Group, Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, Youth Focus Group, and the Dept of Community and Economic Development.
This plan was adopted on March 8, 2011. You can download the complete plan here:
The content of this site is set up as the following categories in the menu at the top of each page:
Home - this is RCT's home page where we will communicate with you on our purpose & initiatives.
About Us (RCT) - This page is as it says...about RCT
Business - A list of Clairton business. We wish to promote business in Clairton and list businesses as we ourselves learn of them. Please help us build this section by providing
information on any Clairton business that is missing.
Calendar of Events - The calendar lists events that are open to the public as a whole. If you wish your event to be posted on the calendar, please contact us.
City Info. - This category is geared towards the government aspect of the city. The Home Rule Charter which was approved April 26, 1988 can be found in this section under "Administrative Tools". This document governs how our city is run, names the types of positions, and how officials are appointed. It lists the governmental positions and descriptions of them.
The Home Rule Charter can also be downloaded here:
Neighborhoods - Describes Clairton neighborhoods, our environment, transportation, and non-governmental city resources & utilities.
School - The city of Clairton school website is a very good resource. This section will highlight some of that information and provide information that we can use to enhance our knowledge of school functions.
