The planning commission has received all comments from the neighborhood that were stated at the January presentations. After the March 28 tour of the neighborhood, the planning commission will consider all comments as well as their own observations and they will revise the map as deemed appropriate. Once the civic association has received the map, we will share it with the community and schedule additional presentations.Interactive Map:bit.ly/wash_west_remap_2023Here is a quick zoning guide for better understanding the zoning classifications.bit.ly/phl_zoningquickguide_2022The Planning Commission provided the WSWCA with a list of all properties that are being considered forrezoning.
