The Philadelphia City Planning Commission adopted the Citywide Vision portion of a new comprehensive plan - the first such venture in five decades. "We've listened to your ideas, and today we are proud to present that final plan to you," Commission Executive Director Gary Jastrzab said.

Work has already begun on the next stage of the comprehensive plan process, the development of 18 district-level plans. The district plans will produce more detailed goals for clusters of similar neighborhoods. The strategies and projects it delineates will cost about $43 billion, and will serve a city that is projected to grow by about 100,000 people to a total of 1.6 million.

Thanks to Gary Jastrzab
