Philadelphia City Planning Commission
Citizens Planning Institute Spring 2017 Course
Citizens Planning Institute (CPI) is the education and outreach arm of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission.
CPI’s main programming is a seven-week course that empowers citizens to take a more effective and active role in shaping the future of their neighborhoods and of Philadelphia through a greater understanding of city planning and the steps involved in development projects. The course includes six evening classes: three introductory classes on planning issues and principles, land use and zoning, and the development process; and three electives, the topics for which change every session.
The course runs every Spring and Fall.
Each participant is also required to complete a final project in order to earn their Certificate of Completion as a Philadelphia Citizen Planner, which they receive at a public ceremony.
“CPI demystifies the process of planning by pointing you to the resources necessary to make changes in your neighborhood. Whether you are a seasoned neighborhood leader or a new resident eager to be more active in the community CPI will help you in envisioning the necessary steps to create and follow through on a plan.” –Fall 2013 participant
