The first citizen input meetings on the public art and urban design components of Pittsburgh's comprehensive plan are scheduled for Tuesday.

Attendees will learn about trends and be invited to provide comment that will help guide the city's appearance.

“Every resident should feel welcome, comfortable and enthusiastic about working with us on this important effort,” Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said in a prepared statement.

The city will engage local, regional and national artists, facilitate care for its extensive art collection and involve artists in public space, facility and infrastructure design.

Here's a schedule of the meetings, all from 6 to 8 p.m.:

• Tuesday in Carnegie Library Brookline, 708 Brookline Blvd., and the Kaufmann Center, 1825 Centre Ave.
