There were no active zoning cases to discuss at the Neighborhood Advisory Committee meeting on March 13th. However Ian Litwin from the City Planning Commission and Hakim Mubarak from Councilwoman Sanchez office discussed the remapping of Frankford for zoning.
Last year the new zoning code was approved. Now it is time to look at the mapping of Frankford to see where it can be improved. Remapping examines each area of the neighborhood to determine if it has the appropriate code. For instance, there is a new zoning code for light industrial/residential. Some areas of Frankford Avenue and the Glove Dye works would benefit from being zoned that way. Other areas might be now be zoned for multi family use but are in fact used as single family homes. That area would then be zoned for single family.
More news on the issue will be coming in future meetings as this process moves along.
The next NAC meeting will be on April 10th at 7PM at the Second Baptist Church at 1801 Meadow Street.
