§ 14-302.  Procedures Summary Table.
Table 14-302-1 summarizes the roles of the recommending and decision bodies listed in § 14-301 (Reviewers and Decision Makers) in specific types of Zoning Code applications. In the event of conflict between the provisions of that table and the text of this Zoning Code, the text shall govern.
(1)   In Table 14-302-1 (Procedures Summary Table), the following abbreviations have the following meanings:
(a)   The letter "S" indicates that sign notice of the application must be provided pursuant to § 14-303(13)(c) (Sign Notice).
(b)   The letter "N" indicates that newspaper notice of the application must be provided pursuant to § 14-303(13)(d) (Newspaper Notice).
(c)   The letter "W" indicates that web notice of the application must be provided pursuant to § 14-303(13)(e) (Web Notice).
(d)   The letter "R" indicates that the body has authority to make a recommendation to another body regarding the application, but does not have the power to make a decision on the application. Generally, recommendations are not final decisions subject to appeal under § 14-303(15) (Appeals).
(e)   The letter "D" indicates that the body has authority to make a decision regarding the application.
(f)   The letter "A" indicates that the body is authorized by either the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter, The Philadelphia Code, or the laws of Pennsylvania to hear appeals of that type of decision.
(g)   The letter "P" indicates that the body has the authority to provide prerequisite approval regarding the application.
(2)   This table is not intended to create or grant legal rights different from those established by other sections of The Philadelphia Code, but to clarify how existing laws of the City and Commonwealth apply to these types of applications.
