Zoning for most of us is not an exciting topic. However, Philadelphia is in the midst of rewriting the zoning code and this presents new opportunities for correcting past wrongs. Why is it that we have to put up with a recovery house on every block in Frankford? Because there are few legal ways to prevent it. The zoning code, as it is now, allows it. The Frankford Civic has been monitoring this issue and has submitted a letter below to the Zoning Code Commission. Click here to read the letter.
We are hoping that the Northwood Civic will support this effort with a similar letter.
