Last night at the general meeting of the Passyunk Square Civic Association, Zoning Committee chair John DiGiulio announced that the following cases will come before the committee during its monthly meeting on April 12:

1. 600-636 Washington Ave.: Seeking the required certificate for a takeout restaurant with seating within the existing shopping center.

2. 909 Federal: Applicant is seeking permission to use home as a home office is not permitted in this zoning district (R-10A).

3. 1410 S. 12th St.: Seeking the legalization of a 4-family dwelling within in an existing structure. Current zoning designation (R-10A) does not allow such use.

4. 1434 S. 12 St: Seeking the legalization of a 2-family dwelling within an existing 2-story structure. Current zoning designation (R-10A) does not allow such use.

5. There is a possibility that the developers for the former I. Goldberg warehouse at 12th and Latona will come before the committee. As of the writing of this post, however, they had not – as far as we know – received their refusals from the department of Licenses and Inspections.

Any neighbors who are interested in the outcome of these cases should attend the Zoning Committee meeting at 7pm on April 12 at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (S.P.O.A.C.) at the corner of East Passyunk and Dickinson. We encourage you to take a walk around the neighborhood and get a sense of where these structures are, what they are and how the proposed use might affect the surrounding area. At the meeting you will be able to give comment and find out when the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) will be hearing the appeals for these cases. Upon completion of each case, the PSCA Zoning Committee will vote either to oppose or not oppose the project and that decision, along with a general sense of the sentiment of those in attendance, will be conveyed to the ZBA for their use in making the final decision on these cases.

The Zoning Committee of the Passyunk Square Civic Association meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm at S.P.O.A.C. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend to find out what development is taking place in their neighborhood.
