On Tuesday, October 8th 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:

1535 S. 11th Street: 

Application for the first story addition to an existing attached structure (max. height not to exceed 38’-0”) for use as an eating & drinking establishment (sit-down restaurant) at 1st floor level with accessory storage at basement, and a single family dwelling unit located at upper level with accessory rear roof deck located at second (2nd) story roof.  Zoning refused because the proposed use of an eating & drinking establishment is not permitted in this zoning district.

1203 S. Clarion Street: 

Application for the change in use from existing one story garage to a three story single family dwelling with one attached off street accessory parking slot inside the residence, and the use of a rooftop sundeck.  Zoning refused due the open area of lot and rear yard depth are under the minimum required amounts.


The following cases have not received a formal refusal but they wanted to present their plan to the neighborhood for input from the community.

1) 1304-06 9th Street – El Zarape Restaurant from Passyunk and Morris signed a lease for this space and will present their plans;

2) 1235 Federal Street – Plans for adding a third floor and building 10 apartment units with 10 parking spaces;

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.
