Zoning Matters

Zoning Matters


Below are the current and upcoming zoning matters within the Chinatown district. Zoning matters are presented to the community first, through public RCO meetings, before they are heard by the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA). Please feel free to attend an RCO meeting or ZBA hearing regarding any matter of interest. All ZBA hearings are held at One Parkway Building, 1515 Arch Street, 18th Floor.

PCDC’s Planning Committee meets at 6pm on the second Tuesday of each month as the Registered Community Organization (RCO) for the boundaries of 8th to 13th Street, Filbert to Spring Garden Street. The next meetings are as follows:

July 12th
August 9th
September 13th
October 11th
November 8th

There are no zoning cases to be reviewed at the July 12th meeting.
Residents who intend to submit a future application for a zoning variance are encouraged to approach PCDC for guidance. Please contact Sarah Yeung at or 215-922-2156.
