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.
