    40 small ways to make Philly a better place
    In today's world, it can be easy to feel either under- or overwhelmed-or both-by all the good and bad that's happening around us. But before you throw up your hands and toss in the towel, consider the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.: "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward."

What's a Plan?

A city plan uses community input, research, and surveying, to guide how to improve housing, neighborhoods, jobs, shopping options, transportation, and public space.

Plans also identify how to turn the ideas in the plan into action. Once completed, City Planning works with other city departments, partners, and community groups to make the plan happen.

Learn more about the Philadelphia2035 plan and the West District.

What's Next?

The final version of the plan will be presented for adoption at a City Planning Commission meeting. Open to the public!

Once the plan is adopted by the City Planning Commission, our staff will start working on making it happen, in partnership with community organizations, West District residents, fellow City departments, and other partners.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.
