The City Planning Commission is aligning Philadelphia’s new zoning code with the goals of Philadelphia2035, the city’s Comprehensive Plan through its formalized public education and outreach arm, the Citizens Planning Institute.
Every year Division staff leads an interdepartmental effort to prepare the City’s Capital Program, the six-year blueprint for investing in Philadelphia’s physical and technology infrastructure, community facilities, and public buildings.
The CPI's mission is to empower citizens to take a more effective and active role in shaping the future of their neighborhoods and of Philadelphia, through a greater understanding of city planning and the steps involved in development projects.
