IPPUC is born with the responsibility to develop, detail and monitor the implementation of the Curitiba Master Plan, which it has performed until today.

As established by the City Statute, the Master Plan Law needs to be revised every ten years. In Curitiba, this process took place in 2014, under the coordination and management of IPPUC, and had wide and effective popular participation. Among the adjustments are issues related to mobility such as the implementation of new structural axes, which cut the current axes and interconnect neighborhoods, being intended for high capacity vehicles; macrozoning, which sets maximum housing values ​​per hectare in certain areas; the instruments of induction and control of the physical ordering of the city and also issues related to climate change. Law 14,771 of the Master Plan was approved in December 2015.
