The city of Philadelphia has hit a roadblock in an attempt to approve a new inclusionary zoning ordinance.
The latest development in the unfolding saga occurred on Monday, when the City Council's Rules Committee postponed a vote on the bill by Councilmember Maria Quiñones-Sánchez until December 5. Jake Blumgart reports that the postponement came after five hours of testimony, with criticism about the bill originating from the development and building industries.
The postponement follows news from last week, also reported by Blumgart, which saw amendments "radically reshape" the bill. Also last week, "[t]he Planning Commission ecided the bill needed more work and voted to place a hold on it," reports Blumgart.
