In 2016, the zoning of East Kensington will be remapped by the Philadelphia City Planning Commission. This will be part of a community process, and will reflect the recommendations of the East Kensington Transportation and Community Development Plan and the Frankford Ave Arts Corridor Plan.

A public meeting to discuss these zoning changes was held on Monday, February 8th

7:00 – 8:30 pm at Circle of Hope (2007 Frankford Ave).

Additional public meetings for community input on these proposed changes to the neighborhood zoning map will be announced on this page and through the EKNA email mailing list.

Please email us at info@ekna.org to provide your feedback on this.
