Firm Obtains Remand of Zoning Decision

March 2008

In the case of North Chestnut Hill Neighbors v. Zoning Board of Adjustment of the City of Philadelphia and Woodmere Art Museum, 928 A.2d 418 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2007), the Firm created new law in the area of zoning and land use planning in Pennsylvania. The Firm successfully argued to the Commonwealth Court that there had been no finding that a variance granted by the Zoning Board of Adjustment of Philadelphia was the minimum necessary to obtain the relief being sought with the least modification possible. This case has been the subject of various articles and has been discussed widely at Continuing Legal Education Programs.
