Belmont Alliance Civic Association - RCO Committee

 

Registered Community Organization (R.C.O.) 

A Registered Community Organization (RCO) according to the Philadelphia Zoning Code includes provisions for ensuring that neighbors of proposed developments are notified and have an opportunity to provide input regarding zoning decisions that may impact them as stated by the City of Philadelphia Planning Commission

 

Our Mission Statement

 

Is to be the conduit for zoning variance meetings requested by developers to be heard by residents, property owners, stakeholders, retail owners or operators and tenants; regarding developers.                                                                                                                                                                                 Our focus as a RCO is land-use, zoning codes, development, revitalization and housing preservation within the geographical area known as the “Belmont” District yet also known as Census Tracts #106 and #107 in the City and County of Philadelphia. 

 

Statement of Purpose

 

The Belmont Alliance Civic Association - RCO Committee was formally known as Holly Street Garden Group or Belmont West RCO.  Our RCO committee formed in the year "2012". 

The meetings we hold as an RCO Committee provides summarizations or opinions or concerns of the "Belmont District" residents in regards to the Variance Zoning Cases presented to us by the request of developers within our geographic area.

The zoning variance cases we hear are normally requested by the site owner and/or legal council who would like to make changes to a pre-existing structure/s of the proposed site/s. 

The B.A.C.A. - RCO Committee members consist of some of BACA board members, residents, stakeholders, retail owners and others who have a legitimate voice in the matter as we uphold the RCO Zoning Rules mandated by the City of Philadelphia Home Charter and City of Philadelphia Planning Committee and City Council.  

Our meeting Chair-Bettye Ferguson was chosen due to her experience as well as being a graduate of the Citizens Planning Institute goverened by the City of Philadelphia Planning Commission; now she's an Alumni with experience in zoning matters. 

Ms. Ferguson continues her base knowledge by taking additional classes to stay up todate as the Chair of this Committee...
