The Philly of the Future: Plan2035
The Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC) has just released the draft of Philadelphia2035: The Comprehensive Plan/Citywide Plan for public review and comment. Residents not only have the opportunity to preview this exciting vision of the future NOW, they can also provide feedback so that it becomes even stronger before its final release.
Philadelphia2035 is a blueprint for a 21st century city that THRIVEs with new growth and opportunities, CONNECTs to the region and the world, and RENEWs its valued resources for future generations.
THRIVE: Philadelphians THRIVE in the center of a competitive metropolitan region.
In 2035, Philadelphia is a thriving metropolis. It is a city built on healthy neighborhoods and
a diverse economy offering opportunity to everyone. Cultural and institutional resources
and new enterprises flourish, and land is used in suitable and vibrant ways.
CONNECT: Philadelphians CONNECT seamlessly to the region and the world.
In 2035, people, goods, and ideas move effortlessly between neighborhoods, the region,
and the world, driving economic prosperity. Reliable and efficient transportation serve a
population that is more energy conscious than ever before.
RENEW: Philadelphians RENEW valuable resources to enable a sustainable future.
As a city intent on renewing the environmental and public realm, in 2035, Philadelphia showcases
centuries of growth and change, treasured parks and rivers (or river trails), valued culture and
architecture, and clean air and water.
The CPC is looking for feedback between now and March 31, 2011. To Get Involved, you can attend the CPC’s monthly meeting (March 15), the Citywide Plan Open House (March 23), or send in comments via email. You can also find Plan2035 on Facebook.
