Challenging the New Zoning Code in Philadelphia, PA

In Philadelphia, PA, years of intense effort, debate and deep thought were rewarded when the first new zoning code in decades officially became the law of the land. Three months later, some members of Philadelphia City Council are attempting to change certain aspects of this new code before giving it the time.

On Tuesday December 4th, 2012, Philadelphia City Council’s Committee held an exhausting meeting that resulted in poorly conceived and ill-advised reduction in the threshold for registered community organizations to influence the zoning process.  The effort by Councilman O’Neill to make it more onerous for developers to execute certain uses in the certain commercial districts is disturbing.  For more on this story,

I think Philadelphia council members need to focus on getting more businesses to come to Philly and not drive them away with unnecessary laws.  I am not against zoning laws, I just think we needed to give the new code more than three months time and focus efforts elsewhere.
