Welcome to the future home of the Housing & Planning Department!

As of October 1, 2020, the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department (NHCD) and Planning and Zoning Department (PAZ) have merged into the Housing and Planning Department (HPD).

This page is a temporary landing page and future hub for all HPD content. Please check back soon!

The merging of the two departments integrates comprehensive planning, zoning, and displacement prevention, which includes affordable housing program delivery. Additionally, this merger allows for the prioritization of resources for equitable and inclusive planning, displacement prevention and programs and projects that seek to create a diverse and racially inclusive City.
