QVNA and the 30+ other civic groups in the Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition support the goal of increasing the amount of affordable housing in our city. But this bill makes sweeping changes to the zoning code and the effect it would have on our neighborhoods is very unclear. So the Crosstown Coalition is asking you to contact the members of City Council’s Rules Committee, to let them know that you want Bill 170678 to be held and not voted on at Monday’s committee hearing.

    Mixed Income Housing Bill
    But this bill makes sweeping changes to the zoning code and the effect it would have on our neighborhoods is very unclear. In fact, the current, amended version of the bill was made available only on November 20 - and the bill is scheduled for a binding committee vote on Monday, November 27.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
