NO, NO, NO! to Phila City Council Bills 060902/01

I oppose Philadelphia City Council Bills #060901 and #060902 because (a) they allow large developers to bypass the Zoning Board for projects that may harm my community; (b) they virtually eliminate my due process rights to contest those projects; and (c) my consent was never sought by my Councilperson. I support comprehensive zoning reform that will place the will of every community ahead of the profit motive of developers and pay-to-play politics. I call upon my district Councilperson to follow the recommendation of the Planning Commission and table these bills until every community in Philadelphia meets with their respective district Councilperson to learn about the bills and have their opinions about them incorporated fully.
