The Philadelphia Historical Commission has postponed its discussion of the proposed changes to its rules and regulations. The discussion, which was on the agenda for Friday’s meeting, will be tabled owing to the absence of Chairman Sam Sherman, who is out of town because of an “urgent personal matter,” as announced by Commission director Jonathan Farnham Thursday morning.

The proposed changes to the rules affect the Commission’s financial hardship ordinance and could effectively give the Commission more leeway in approving demolition of historically listed properties.
