Planning Department LogoWelcome to the web page of the City of Quincy's Department of Planning and Community Development (PCD). The PCD is a unique department within the City because it was established by an Act (Chapter 898) of the Massachusetts legislature in 1973. Under this Act, PCD was bestowed the powers, duties and functions of the planning department, the planning board, the industrial development commission, and of an Urban renewal agency under Chapter 121B of the General Laws.

PCD may act as an agent of the City in any clearance, housing, relocation, urban renewal, rehabilitation, and community development programs and projects. Accordingly, a major responsibility of the PCD is the administration, for the Mayor, of the City's Federal and State Grants on housing, homeless, economic development and community development.
