ASK YOUR COMMISSIONER AND MANAGER  FOR THIS AND ALL RELATED  MEETINGS TO BE VIDEO-TAPED  & AIRED FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T MAKE IT

  THE NUTS AND BOLTS   “Mediplex Property Group Abington, LLC.” is wants to develop ,1863 & 1865 Guernsey Avenue, 1854 & 1856 Eckard Avenue and 1137, 1141, 1145 &1151 Old York Road, 19001 to make approximately 20,000 square feet of medical office space in a new, two-story building . They will seek a special exception  in order to operate a Use F-2 Medical Office Building – that is by Special Exception only in Main Street Low Density . They are  appealing the actions of the Zoning Officer in his determination that the proposed plan constitutes a redevelopment as per Section 1911 which says SECTION 1911. REDEVELOPMENT: When an existing building or use, or combination thereof, is nonconforming, and demolition of the building or use is proposed for redevelopment, the existing nonconforming conditions (including nonconforming impervious coverage levels) may not be continued or transferred to the new development proposal.   In the alternative, (ie if the Zoning Hearing Board isn’t going for that deal-io )   they  will seek  a use variance from Section 602, of the Use Matrix to allow parking within the R-4 Residential District.   The properties are zoned Main Street Low and R-4 Residential in  Ward #7  ( Some I understand might be in Ward 10) 
The Zoning Board Hearing
was advertised on July 1st  and will appear  in the papers again on July 8th.  The docs were not posted until 7-2-17  - not much time to understand and  prepare questions for a July 10 meeting with a hearing just a week later the Zoning Hearing Board on July 17 at 7:00 p.m.

Here’s where, scrolling down , you will see them state their reasoning for the special exceptions etc
( in essence that  they think the project is appropriate for the area  and an improvement to what is there. )
