NKCDC has been involved with zoning matters since its creation in 1985. Currently the CDC maintains a six-member zoning committee consisting of members of the Board of Directors and other volunteer neighbors. Our territory of concern is contiguous with our service area, servicing the 19125 and 19134 zip codes.
If you have an appeal scheduled with the Zoning Board of Adjustment for a property within our territory, please contact the Neighborhood Advisory Committee immediately. We would like to meet with you and review your plans, and we ask that you bring the following documents:
- A copy of your Licenses and Inspections application, refusal, and petition of appeal
- Architectural plans and elevations
- The date and time of your ZBA hearing
After we meet with you (a week or two before your scheduled hearing), we will distribute flyers around your property to notify the residents of your zoning appeal. If a sufficient number of people voice concerns regarding the appeal, NKCDC will schedule a community meeting with the applicant and distribute another flyer announcing the meeting.
The community meeting gives concerned residents the opportunity to become more informed, to ask questions, and to vote on the proposal. The zoning committee reviews the community's input from the meeting and then creates a letter to be sent to the ZBA on behalf of NKCDC and its community.
If you live in the 19125 zip code - Please contact Tom Potts at 215-427-0350 x 119 or email@example.com for further assistance.
If you live in the 19134 zip code - Please contact Kevin Musselman at 215-427-0350 x 126 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
Frankford Avenue Design Guidelines
In January of 2007. the East Kensington Neighborhors Association, Fishtown Neighbors Association and NKCDC join forces to create design guidelines for the Frankford Avenue commercial corridor and the adjacent streets. As rehab and new construction projects are proposed in these neighborhoods, it is important that the developments respect the integrity and history of the community. The hope is that this document helps create a healthy relationship between the builders and the residents. These guidelines are used as a helpful tool for local zoning committees.
