Joyce Pan Huang

Director of City Planning, City of Cleveland

Joyce Pan Huang serves as the Planning Director for the City of Cleveland’s City Planning Commission under Mayor Justin M. Bibb. Huang facilitates the development of the City’s long-range comprehensive plan, community-based neighborhood planning efforts, land use and zoning policies, public realm improvements, development review and other regulatory practices. She previously served as the Vice President of Community Development at MidTown Cleveland, Inc., an economic and community development organization for the City’s MidTown and AsiaTown neighborhoods. A transplant from the Rochester, NY area, Joyce has lived in the Cleveland area for 16 years including the Shaker Square, Ohio City and AsiaTown neighborhoods. As a 2nd generation Asian American and a child of immigrants, she fully embraces this identity, which has also shaped how she views city planning. Huang loves playground-hunting with her young child and husband, and she appreciates public art and well-designed and active public plazas and parks.

Joyce holds a Master of Urban Planning, Design and Development from Cleveland State University’s Levin College of Urban Affairs and a B.S. in Sociology with a Minor in the Program in the Environment from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.
