Hearing on Bill 170678

Hearing on Bill 170678
Monday, November 27th
10:00am- 12:00pm
City Hall, Room 400
Wear your green shirt!

On the very last day of the last Council session, Councilwoman Quinones-Sanchez introduced Bill 170678, named the Mixed Income Housing Bill, to create mandatory inclusionary zoning in Philadelphia. This would mean that market-rate developers would be mandated to build affordable units or pay money into the Housing Trust Fund when they develop more than ten new units. We just found out that the hearing for this bill is happening at the end of this month. We need to show up to City Council to support PCAC members testifying about the need for resources for the Housing Trust Fund. If you are interested in providing testimony (written or spoken), contact Nancy Salandra:
215-634-2000 ext. 116
