To learn how planning and development occurs in the city of Phoenix, watch the Urban Planning 101 videos series in either English or Spanish.  Tip: Use the Playlist control in the upper left corner of the video window to change videos.

The city of Phoenix Planning & Development Department (PDD) 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.
