Philadelphia City Planning Commission

Guiding the orderly growth and development of the City of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia City Planning Commission

What we do

As part of the Philadelphia Department of Planning and Development, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) is a bridge between the public and the government.

We guide investment and growth in Philadelphia. The goal is to create neighborhoods that are well-connected, affordable, and desirable places to live and work.

As outlined in the City’s charter, PCPC oversees the:

  • Physical development plan of the City, or the Comprehensive Plan.
  • Zoning ordinances, maps, and amendments.
  • Capital Program and Budget.
  • Streets and land subdivisions.
  • Recommendations to City Council related to zoning and development legislation.

The Comprehensive Plan is a policy document that focuses on land-based issues. Community groups, City Council members, and developers can use the plan as a road map for development in their areas.
