The Vision for Philadelphia's Growth and Development
How much housing does the city need? Where should the buses run? What recreation centers need upgrades? The Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) works to answer these questions. The city is required to have a plan to guide growth, development, and investment. That plan is known as a comprehensive plan. The PCPC creates the comprehensive plan and keeps it updated. The current plan is Philadelphia2035.
PCPC works with residents, business owners, institutions, other city agencies and elected officials. These collaborations help guide the creation and implementation of the comprehensive plan.
The first part of Philadelphia2035, the Citywide Vision, is now ten years old. PCPC has begun work to help shape an update to the plan.
