Monthly Meeting

Zoning Committee meetings are normally held the SECOND Monday of the month at 7:00pm when there is a pending zoning variance application.  If there are no pending applications, then the meeting is cancelled.  Upcoming meetings and applicants are announced at the EPX Civic Association’s General Membership meeting on the FIRST Monday of each month and they are also included in the monthly email newsletter sent from the EPX Civic Board. (To sign up for the EPX Civic Association’s email newsletter, click here.)  Currently, Zoning Committee meetings are held via Zoom videoconference, which can be accessed at tinyurl.com/EPXzoning.  Meetings for larger projects will be held at the East Passyunk Community Center at 1025 Mifflin Street.  Please note, in case of conflicts or holidays in some months, meetings are occasionally moved to a different Monday.  All meetings are open to the public.
