The Philadelphia City Planning Commission invites the public to share their ideas and views on the future of the North Delaware District of the Philadelphia 2035 Plan. This plan will identify key projects and focus areas to address over the next twenty years in our area.
Key parts of the comprehensive plan highlight Demographics (population growth, age, household type, income, race, unemployment); Environment (pollution, tree coverage, water); Public Health (illness, chronic disease, obesity, smoking. food access); Open Space & Trails; Transportation (commercial corridors, major infrastructure); Zoning; Commercial Corridors & Neighborhood Retail; and Public Spaces, Gateways, and Public Art..
A plan cannot be successful without public involvement, and as the North Delaware District Plan progresses, there are key opportunities for public input and involvement.

On Tuesday evening July 28th, 2015 the North Delaware Steering Committee made up of key stakeholders shared initial thoughts on the analysis of the Planning Commission Staff. The activity identified Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Barriers within the district. There are many exciting projects underway including: the Torresdale Ave Revitalization Project, Library Renovation, Waterfront Trail Expansion, I-95 Reconstruction, and New School Construction in Tacony. We look forward to expanding these opportunities in the District Plan.
