The Bella Vista Community Zoning Board is a registered RCO with the city of Philadelphia’s Planning Commission.  Zoning applicants withing the CZB boundaries of Bella Vista are required to contact the CZB regarding the zoning appeal.  The CZB requires copies of the Notice of Refusal prior to the meeting.

The CZB will hear the presentation and review plans and photos at the meeting.  A decision will be made on whether or not to support the appeal of the applicant.

The Bella Vista CZB is comprised of Bella Vista residents — some with experience in zoning law and architecture; while others with experience in community activism and a love for Bella Vista.

It is the goal of the CZB to encourage responsible growth in our community.  To contact the CZB CLICK HERE.
