Urban Design

The Department of City Planning (DCP) and our agency partners have developed a diverse set of resources to help guide people through the urban design and planning processes. These resources illustrate zoning codes, promote design objectives for walkability and health, link communities to the city planning programs and initiatives in their areas and support quality buildings and open spaces.

Collectively, they aim to clearly present the city’s goals and guidelines for New York City.
