City Planning News: Rezoning

The Fort Greene and Clinton Hill section of our Council District was re-zoned in July of 2007. Now, that effort is being extended to the rest of our Council District. The Department of City Planning (DCP) has a well-defined procedure for re-zoning called the Uniform Land Use Review Process (ULURP); you can learn more here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/luproc/ulpro.shtml

A down-zoning effort is in the early stages in Community Board 8, and we hope to initiate a similar process soon in Community Board 9. In both cases, we will be working with the local Community Board and seeking volunteers to help with the process. Keep checking here for upcoming meeting information concerning re-zoing.
