8 AM, THURSDAY, July 7
CENTER FOR ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN, 1218 ARCH STREET
Registered Community Organizations (RCOs) have been with us since the adoption of the new Zoning Code in 2012, as a means of providing civic input into zoning and development proposals. Has the RCO structure achieved its goals? What are its successes and failures so far? What changes might be considered?
Eleanor Sharpe, deputy executive director of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, and Alan Greenberger, the former deputy mayor for planning and development, will discuss the history and track record of RCOs. Both were closely involved in establishing the RCO provisions. Joining them will be Joe Schiavo, chair of the Zoning Committee at the Crosstown Coalition and vice chair of the Central Delaware Advocacy Group, an RCO.
