Introduction 1394-2016 Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) Map to Prevent Rezoning by Variance
This bill would require the Board of Standards and Appeals to create, and post on its website, an interactive map displaying the location of all variances and special permits approved by the BSA since January 1, 1996. The map would allow a user to filter by borough; council district; community district; type of variance; date; and, for special permits, active or inactive status.
