Zoning Matters

Ryan Briggs over at City Paper digs into the hows and whys of Philly's dysfunction in the zoning process. Digging deeper into two specific cases, the story tries to plot out why it is that the Zoning Board of Adjustment (or Enforcement?) oftentimes contradicts the very zoning principles it adopted back in 2012 — such as developments with front-end loading garages that require a public curb cut. It's zoning, so it might not make too much sense, but the story is definitely worth a read. These things impact your everyday life. [City Paper]
