These are real steps forward, says Thomas Chapman, acting director of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission.On the whole, he adds, "the city is in a good place; we have new residential development of all different types in virtually every neighborhood."It's the development boom itself , which has led to the city's newfound status as a desirable place to live, shop, and be entertained , that has heightened public interest in planning, he says.
City planning director Tom Chapman acknowledges the concerns expressed by Coffey and others.
"Some people would like us to have more power and responsibility than we actually have," Chapman continues."They care more about design issues, but design review is not something the planning commission really has much control over."
As for the fact that the last citywide master plan was adopted when Eisenhower was president, Chapman notes that the size, scope, complexity, and cost of such an undertaking require major public and political support."It can't be done by a bunch of guys in a smoke-filled room," he says.
It's the development boom itself that has caused some of the unhappiness, Chapman adds.The boom has given the city a new desirability.But it has also caused inevitable problems that have heightened public interest in planning generally, and in reforming the zoning code in particular, he says.

The proposal is the first step in "finding areas of the city where new homes and even new neighborhoods can be built," said Thomas Chapman, director of developmental planning for the City Planning Commission."It's a long-range plan that could take 20 to 30 years to fully implement." The plan, now before City Council's Rules Committee, re-zones a section of the Delaware River waterfront between the Betsy Ross Bridge and Rhawn Street to dissuade undesirable businesses, like junkyards and slaughterhouses, from taking advantage of the area's current zoning designation as largely heavy industrial.The new zoning is designed to stabilize and clean up an area now scarred with empty lots, scrap heaps and crumbling concrete, evidence of the area's history as a manufacturing behemoth.

Chapman assured them the Zoning Board of Adjustment would be receptive to their plight.
