Philadelphia 2035, also spelled "Philadelphia2035", gives the following descriptive information:

Philadelphia2035 is the city’s currently adopted Physical Development – or Comprehensive Plan. While a physical development plan looks far into the future, it deals with the projects, policies, and changes we need to start making today to create a more livable, healthy, and economically viable city in the future. Philadelphia2035 makes recommendations for actions that the Mayor, City Council, government agencies, and community partners can take to invest in neighborhoods and increase the city’s competitiveness in the global economy.

Broader policy recommendations were adopted as a first component of the Comprehensive Plan called the Citywide Vision (June 2011). Geographically specific recommendations are contained within District Plans, which are being prepared for every section of Philadelphia (2011 – 2017).

First is the citywide plan, now known as the Citywide Vision. Next, eighteen District Plans, covering every neighborhood of Philadelphia, will be prepared over several years to focus the Citywide Vision's broad recommendations more specifically and geographically.

The Citywide Vision was adopted by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission on June 7, 2011. It is organized into four chapters:

  • Defining The Context.
  • Building On Our Stengths.
  • Framing Our Future.
  • Making It Happen.
