City Council passed two bills endorsed by the Center City Residents Association
The first, Bill 190312 introduced by
Councilmember Johnson, who represents the southern portion of CCRA's
territory, changed the zoning designations of properties between South
Street and Spruce Street, and between the Schuylkill River and Broad
Street. The Bill embodies the recommendations of the CCRA Remapping
Committee which, in conjunction with the Philadelphia Planning
Commission held three public review sessions regarding this proposal.
The second, Bill 190313,
sponsored by our two District Council representatives Kenyatta
Johnson and Darrell Clarke,restricted the Fresh Food Market Bonus of
increased height and density and decreased parking to retail grocers
utilizing a minimum of 5000 square feet, a requirement that should limit
it's impact on the CCRA neighborhood.
