Dear Ms. Brown-Sow:

Please accept this letter on behalf of the Mayfair Civic Association (“MCA”) which represents the neighbors of the Mayfair Community. In reviewing the Zoning Board of Adjustment’s Notice, the Applicant/Owner proposes:

“Permit for Erection of a Rear Deck for a Two (2) Existing Apartments in the Same Building with an Existing Hair Salon on First Floor.”

We ask the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) to DENY this Zoning Variance. We, the Mayfair Civic Association (MCA), OPPOSE this Zoning Variance for the Following Reasons:

1. Complaints from Neighbors for Excessive Noise Violations (§ 10-403 Noise Ordinance, Prohibited Conduct).

2. Consistent Disposal of Trash at the Curb, days before Scheduled Trash Collection.

3. No Rental License on File (when last inquired) with the City of Philadelphia for the Commercial Unit/Ground Floor (Hair Salon) and the 3rd Floor Residential Unit.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the numbers below.                                                            Very Truly Yours,
