Our Story

The Founder of Philadelphia Zoning began in this industry as a permit expediter. She quickly realized the lack of information, organization, and understanding regarding complex zoning and permitting processes that affect many Philadelphia business owners, developers, and homeowners. She also realized there was a lack of professional permit expediting services.  So, Philadelphia Zoning was launched to provide high-quality and effective permit expediting and zoning project management services to those who need it most.

 

Oddly enough, upon Alexa’s involvement in this world, she had no idea what zoning even was, or that we all live in structures that are ‘zoned’.  She realized that many other people were like her, and it wasn’t so odd to have no clue about zoning and permitting. She determined that providing information and tools to the public about these complex systems in an easy-to-digest manner was also important and necessary.

Our Mission

An expediting firm with a mission? Pulling permits with purpose? Yep, you read that right…


We’ve experienced lots of dishonesty and confusion in this sector affecting all kinds of people. We’ve seen homeowners purchase a property only to find out they have thousands of dollars in violations because a previous contractor didn’t get permits for the job. We’ve seen business owners hire ‘professionals’ to help them through the zoning process only to have to start over after sinking thousands of dollars and months of time into their dream. We’ve seen agents sell homes zoned ‘multifamily’ only to have the new owner find out it is indeed, not zoned that way.  It’s our mission to help put an end to these unnecessary and challenging complications through education and empowerment.

Community Impact Mission

Every quarter, Philadelphia Zoning features one Philadelphia-based organization that is working to improve, beautify, or strengthen our local communities in some way. We contribute to the organization’s cause through volunteering, driving traffic to their platforms, or donating a % of profit for the month.

Our Core Values

Transparency

We’re straight-up with you. You’re straight-up with us. We’re not afraid of being real. We communicate everything with you along the way, and you’re never kept in the dark.

Accountability

We exist to solve problems, take responsibility for what’s ours, and have a no-excuses mentality.  We’re not a fan of the run-around ourselves.

Simplicity

These topics can be complicated-enough so we strive to keep things as simple as possible; whether it’s our communication strategy or how we execute and manage projects.

Education

We create resources to educate about these topics and take an educational & collaborative approach when working with clients so you walk away with more knowledge and deeper understanding.

Systemization

Systemization streamlines and organizes projects so things don’t slip and negatively impact budgets and timelines. Plus, it leaves more room for creativity.

Empowerment

We aim to empower you to make decisions that align with your budget, life, timeline, and bandwidth. We’re not here to tell you what to do, but rather present you with the details and options so you can decide.

Our Process

This is an overview of the different phases of a permitting or zoning project when you work with Philadelphia Zoning.

Research & Assess

Each project begins with a thorough research phase. Every project is vastly different, and we want to ensure we all understand what can come up along the way and effectively plan ahead.

Collect & Compile

We collect all relevant information and documentation from you and any third parties, then assemble organized submission packages for applications and prerequisite approvals.

Approve & Apply

If prerequisite approvals are required, we will obtain approvals prior to or from relevant city departments. We either do this prior to application submission, or at the same time, depending on the dynamics of the project.

Manage & Fulfil

We coordinate additional info. requests and manage timeline. Everything is communicated with you along the way. Our job isn’t done until the approved permit + plans are in your hands.
