What do a proposed development in your neighborhood, a plan for the creation of a new public park, and an addition to your house have in common? They are all dependent on your city's zoning code. And a zoning code should be fair, sensible and smart. Philadelphia's current zoning code is out-of-date and out-of-touch with the needs of our City and our neighborhoods.
In the May 2007 Primary, the citizens spoke loud and clear. Nearly 80% of the voters approved Ballot Question #6 which called for the creation of a Zoning Code Commission to reform and modernize Philadelphia's Zoning Code.
