Become a Citizen Planner

The Philadelphia City Planning Commission is launching a pilot Citizens Planning Institute. Citizen Planners are individuals interested in playing a more informed and active role in shaping the future of their communities and in building the knowledge base of their neighborhood organizations.

At the Citizens Planning Institute, residents will:

* Identify community assets, assess needs, and shape positive neighborhood change.
* Understand how zoning code reform will improve the process and quality of development projects.
* Identify tools to protect a community’s unique assets and promote good development.
* Understand how planning will improve the likelihood that quality of life neighborhood improvements will get implemented.
