Creating strong neighborhoods with empowered residents.

What we do

The Department of Planning and Development works in collaboration with communities to promote, plan, preserve, and develop successful neighborhoods for all.

Reaching these goals requires city agencies to work together with residents, businesses, developers, advocates, funders, and each other. Planning and Development has a team of agencies that do just that. Our agencies include:

We also partner with the PHDC.

Together we are charting a vibrant future for our city.
