Philadelphia's Waterfront Plan
The planning process for a Plan for the Central Delaware Riverfront was initiated on October 12, 2006 by an Executive Order signed by Mayor John F. Street, which established the Central Delaware Riverfront Advisory Group and a Steering Committee. The Advisory Group includes citizens, civic leaders, elected officials and design professionals, and it is chaired by the Executive Director of the City Planning Commission. Penn Praxis, which is the clinical arm of the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania, coordinated a highly-successful civic engagement process that inspired the Civic Vision for the Central Delaware, a plan for the Delaware River from Allegheny Avenue to Oregon Avenue. The Civic Vision was unveiled to the public on June 26, 2008 and received immediate and enthusiastic approval from Mayor Michael Nutter.
