Body
THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA HEREBY ORDAINS:

SECTION 1. Legislative Findings. The Council finds that:

a. There has been a recent proliferation, concentrating in certain areas of the City, of certain uses;
b. That the concentration of these uses causes the areas in which these uses have located to become a focus of crime;
c. To prevent the further deterioration of communities and neighborhoods in the City of Philadelphia, and to provide for the orderly, planned future development of the City, that in addition to existing zoning regulations, certain additional special regulations are necessary to ensure that these adverse effects will not continue to contribute to generate negative impacts in the surrounding neighborhoods; and
d. To control the concentration of certain uses, special regulations relating to the location of these uses are necessary.
e. Certain uses are inappropriate in or around residential neighborhoods and residentially related uses, because of, for example, deleterious health, safety, or environmental effects.
