crucial part of the re-write of the Philadelphia Zoning Code and the
implementation of the Philadelphia 2035 Plan is to change the base zoning maps for the entire city. The Philadelphia City Planning Commission, in close consultation with District Council people
community groups, is going neighborhood-by-neighborhood to do this following

throughout the neighborhood.
