On Tuesday, July 9th at 7PM at Annunciation BVM Church Hall at 1511 S. 10th Street (Dickinson St Entrance) the Zoning Committee of the Passyunk Square Civic Association is scheduled to hear the following cases:

642 Washington Avenue:

819 Alter Street: 

Application is for erection of a third story addition in the required front set back of an existing attached single family dwelling.  The required front set back is 8’-0” but the proposed set back is 0’-0”.

1139 S. 8th Street: 

Application is for the legalization of a one story garage to be used for off street parking as part of a single family dwelling.  The application was refused because the minimum dimension of a parking space, the rear yard set back and the open area of lot is less than the required dimensions.

Application is for converting the property with commercial space on the first floor and a two family dwelling into a three family dwelling, which is not permitted in this zoning district.

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 final decisions on the applications, but it does send letters to the Philadelphia Zoning Board Administration.
