Since the inception of PCA in 1983, when a much smaller downtown was in decline, a number of ballot measures led by PCA and the Central City Planning and Development Committee helped usher in catalytic public-private partnerships, processes, and incentives to help make new development projects possible.
The Central City Planning & Development Committee’s current initiative is to work with the City of Phoenix to detail and refine the recurring challenges developers of various types and sizes encounter.
The objective is to take a solution-oriented approach to work with the city to help simplify the process, saving time and money.
