City Councilman Brian O’Neill used the monthly meeting of the Somerton Civic Association to detail three Council bills that he recently introduced to amend the city’s zoning code.
A 2012 zoning board decision that would have allowed a Northeast mosque to build a 65-foot minaret on its Boulevard property was reversed last week.
Members of the Greater Bustleton Civic League last week voted to support zoning variances for two properties on the same block of Geiger Road.
Members of the Frankford Neighborhood Advisory Committee voted to not oppose a pizza shop’s application for a zoning variance that would allow an illuminated sign at Torresdale Avenue and Anchor Street.
A man who lives near a Northeast Philadelphia mosque is appealing a zoning board decision to allow the mosque to expand and build a 65-foot minaret.
A Cliffe Drive resident who built a deck that is closer to a neighbor’s property than allowed by city code last week got the overwhelming support of Parkwood Civic Association members for his application for a zoning variance.
If the fight over the use of one little Bustleton house were a reality TV show, it would be called Zoning Wars. So far, there have been several episodes, and another is in production now.
After a long-delayed hearing on whether a Bustleton businessman may legally make dental retainers in a residentially zoned Haldeman Avenue property, members of the Zoning Board of Adjustment decided not to decide.
The Somerton Civic Association appointed new officers and rejected a local homeowner’s application to legalize an oversized shed in his yard during the civic group’s monthly meeting on June 10.
