The City has released a report on the progress of the Philadelphia2035 comprehensive plan. This report, the Phila2035 2023 Implementation Update, is available for download here. The report highlights 29 projects that advance the plan, like updates to FDR Park, the Delaware River Trail, and the Broad, Germantown and Erie safety improvements and redesign. Each project serves to help Philadelphia thrive, connect, or renew.

Philadelphia2035 is a guide for the city’s long-term growth, called a comprehensive plan. The Philadelphia City Planning Commission creates the plan and keeps it updated. The plan was formed with input from residents, business owners, elected officials, other City agencies, and community partners across Philadelphia. It was adopted as the City’s comprehensive plan in 2011. In the years since, the plan has guided the remapping of more than 44% of city land (that’s around 7,000 acres) to make sure the zoning matches existing uses and point the way for future projects.

This report, and other Philadelphia2035 implementation updates, is available on the City’s website and at
