Old City District serves as the local Registered Community Organizations (RCO), as recognized by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission. The RCO reviews zoning applications for projects proposed within our geographic boundaries, once an application has been submitted to the Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections (L&I), as prescribed by the zoning code of Philadelphia.  This review may result in a position letter sent to the Philadelphia Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA). The RCO meets on the third Wednesday of the month, as needed.


Schedule an RCO review meeting

To discuss your project, schedule an RCO review meeting, or inquire further about the RCO process, please contact Old City District at (215) 592-7929 or info@oldcitydistrict.org, before or upon submission of your application to L&I.
