How Zoning is a Good Tool of Planning

Understand the origins and reasons why zoning is important as a tool of planning. Zoning is an exercise of police power, in that it regulates land uses and the type, size and height of buildings. Learn how to navigate Philadelphia’s new zoning code–the new zoning classification system, use tables, and dimensional tables. Practice using the code by reviewing a zoning use permit application.
