​About Planning & Development

Phoenix City Hall
Building Phoenix

The Planning & Development Department (P&D) guides the physical development of the city by preserving our historic sites, planning what can ​be built where, and ensuring safe construction of buildings and infrastructure. A host of advisory and governing bodies of residents as well as elected officials provide oversight as the city grows and needs arise. The process is governed through development and enforcement of city codes and ordinances.
