About the Housing and Planning Department
Who we are
In 2020, the Housing and Planning Department formed by merging Neighborhood Housing & Community Development (NHCD) and Planning & Zoning (PAZ).
The two departments integrate 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.
