PCPC’s huge agenda dominates PlanPhilly coverage

The PlanPhilly homepage is chock-a-block with Philadelphia Planning Commission news right now thanks to a monster agenda Tuesday at the monthly PCPC meeting. Full video coverage complements:

  • As previously reported for PlanPhilly/NewsWorks by Amy Z. Quinn, Chelten Plaza’s Dollar Tree debate could be decided through a revision to the Germantown Avenue overlay presented by Councilwoman Donna Reed Miller. Miller’s bill was disapproved. Read Amy’s report.
  • Anthony Campisi details informational presentations and PCPC concerns about three upcoming projects: a proposed 16-story residential tower at 205 Race Street, a mixed-use development at Broad and South that could be up to 7 stories, and a 17-story office tower at 3400 Market Street by the University City Science Center.
  • Jared Brey breaks down zoning-related items, including Councilman Darrell Clarke’s bill to prevent the construction of new multi-family housing around Temple – from 9th to 19th, between Cecil B. Moore and Lehigh avenues. Clarke presented this bill in response to town-gown complaints by neighbors.
  • All the rest is covered by Matt Golas – from Blight Recertification for the Callowhill Industrial District and Philadelphia2035 District Plan updates to street striking.
