Attention Residents and Zoning Applicants
In compliance with the Philadelphia Zoning Code, ORCA is a registered community organization (“RCO”). Click here to review the Philadelphia Zoning Code (PDF).

Zoning Applicants
If you have recently been issued a zoning or permit refusal from L&I, and need to set up a zoning meeting with ORCA, please email a copy of your refusal letter to zoning@olderichmondca.com to schedule an ORCA zoning meeting.

Please do not schedule an expedited ZBA hearing. If ORCA cannot schedule a community meeting within the shortened time period, we will file a continuance with the Zoning Board of Adjustment.

Outdoor Seating Requests
Outdoor seating requests are handled by City Council. Businesses seeking outdoor seating and residents impacted by proposed outdoor seating are encouraged to contact the First District City Councilman’s office.

Meeting Location
ORCA Zoning Meetings are typically held at the Cione Rec Center, located at the intersection of East Lehigh Avenue and Aramingo Avenue. Community Zoning Meetings involving other organizations may be held at a different location. Click on the zoning event (below) for details concerning each zoning meeting.
