The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment (1515 Arch St., 18th Floor) will hear the following cases next week, both of which have already appeared before the Passyunk Square Civic Association Zoning Committee:

1. 1157 S. 12th St. Applicant is seeking to legalize a currently disallowed three-family use of a building that is zoned R-10A (single family). The Committee voted in opposition to this project at its September meeting. ZBA hearing is scheduled for January 10 at 9:30am. Calendar number is 15756.

2. 1526 S. 10th St. Applicant is seeking to build a three-story addition on top of an existing one-story structure for use as a single family residence. Refused for various reasons including exceeding maximum allowed height. Committee voted in non-opposition to this project at its December meeting. ZBA hearing is scheduled for January 11 at 4pm. Calendar number is 16654.

Any neighbor with an interest in the outcome of these cases should attend the ZBA hearing. Results of the hearings can be gotten by calling the ZBA at 215-686-2430 and giving the calendar number. It is recommended to wait a couple days after the hearing date to allow time for the decision to be entered into their system.

The PSCA Zoning Committee meetings are opportunities for neighbors to hear the details of zoning applications within our civic association boundaries. The Zoning Committee does not make any final decisions on these zoning applications, but we do send letters to the Philadelphia Zoning Board Administration. Those letters outline the neighbors’ thoughts on the application and the Zoning Committee’s decision either to oppose or not oppose the proposal. Check out Passyunk.org for more information following the meeting about how the board voted and information about the ZBA hearing dates for these cases.

Zoning Committee meetings take place on the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm at S.P.O.A.C.
