Zoning Code Stakeholder X-Change Meetings

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 Philadelphia’s current zoning code is out-of-date and out-of-touch with the needs of our City and our neighborhoods.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.

ZoningMatters.org follows the progress of the Zoning Code Commission as its members work to produce an improved code for the City.  The site provides information on issues and trends in zoning and draws connections to the larger context of urban planning in Philadelphia. It is designed to keep the public informed and involved as Philadelphia begins this exciting and important opportunity to design a new vision for the growth of our City and the preservation of our neighborhoods.
