Zoning Variances

Louis M. Iatarola, Tacony Civic Zoning Committee Chair

6606 Hegerman - permit to construct a one story side yard addition to an existing garage as part of a single family home. Meeting was held with applicant at property on May 2nd for a May 22 ZBA hearing. TCA opposed application as it was to be constructed on what should be a side yard buffer. ZBA denied application on May 22.

5301 Tacony Street - application to construct a major shopping center to be known as Shoppes at the Arsenal on a 47 acre site at the north end of the property. To include 15 to 17 buildings including a gas station, one story supermarket, up to eight restaurants and 1,560 parking spaces. A meeting was held with the applicant and TCA Board and Committee on July 25 to prepare for an August 1 hearing. TCA did not oppose and is awaiting news on ZBA decision.

4731-33 Levick Street - permit to reface existing non-illuminated bracket sign, have an office for auto tags, bill payment and money transfers on the first floor as well as tire sales and installation at the rear with a second floor insurance office. Meeting was held on July 24 for an August 7 ZBA hearing. TCA opposed the tire and automotive component and did not oppose the two office uses on each floor. Awaiting news on ZBA decision.

7212-16 Keystone Street - permit to legalize banquet/meeting hall for assembly of more than 50 persons. City Zoning Code does not have a banquet hall classification and the permit calls for a nightclub. ZBA hearing on August 8 was continued to October 3 so a meeting can be held with neighbors to determine if enough provisos can be implemented to restrict use to a banquet hall for a non-profit with no serving of alcohol. Meeting date will be announced at General Meeting.
