Neighborhood Conservation Overlay

Matt Wysong and Marty Gregorski of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission presented the NCO. See enclosed handout defining NCO and the proposed guidelines. Building permit applications would require review by the Planning Commission. Because the NCO requires front porches on new construction under certain circumstances, an attendee raised the issue of whether the porch would be considered part of the 30% maximum impervious coverage mandated by the NCO. Planning Commission members acknowledged this needed to be reviewed.
