You may want to look here for some thoughts on the matter:
I lean towards Quixote and/or CherryPy, with ZODB as the storage. Both
are conceptually similar (I'm comparing v2 of both), but I favor Quixote
just slightly more, mostly for Quixote's better form handling. Cheetah
is a very nice templating package, but in Quixote I just use its own
PTL, since it's built-in.
If you wanted to stick with PHP for some reason, Drupal is a very nicely
designed framework (or CivicSpace, which is developed in parallel with
Drupal, with a number of added-on features).
