Mission Statement:

The mission of the City Planning Commission is to function as an advisory body to the City Council on the physical, economic and social development of the City. The Commission serves both the legislative branch and the citizens of Detroit by acting as a representative of the community, serving as a conduit for opinions from the community, and proactively initiating matters for consideration by the City Council. In this way, the Commission is a key link in the City’s development process.


  • This Commission focuses on issues, procedures and fees related to Zoning, Land Use and Rezoning.
  • Additionally, CPC also focuses on processes related to the Community Development Block Grant Funding, the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund, and Hope Funding.
