Pittsburgh's chief urban affairs officer will serve as chairwoman of the Housing Authority of the City of Pittsburgh's board of directors.

The board on Thursday voted unanimously to appoint Valerie McDonald Roberts, 58, to the post.

Former Chairman Ricky Burgess of North Point Breeze, a city councilman, will remain on the board.

Roberts said she plans to promote transparency and cooperation between the authority and other areas of city government.

She also wants the authority to collaborate more with local nonprofit and faith-based groups.
