Pittsburgh is changing.

After decades of bleeding population, the city is growing. The steel mills and H.J. Heinz Co. factories are gone, and a modern workforce embraces medical research, education and hi-tech industry. The rivers are cleaner and accessible for recreation; the air is improving.

Even the Pirates are good.

More change awaits. The Tribune-Review has identified five people who will be major agents of such change, and others who could steal the spotlight.

They are innovators, embodying the spirit of a new Pittsburgh. They are promising leaders, evoking great expectations. If they falter, they will find themselves under an uncomfortable microscope.

From a new mayor to coaches we know, all likely will shape the coming year. They are the Trib's People to Watch in 2014 .
