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 .

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
