On the agenda for Monday's Review Session [PDF] of the City Planning Commission (CPC) are two Brooklyn rezoning proposals: Greenpoint-Williamsburg, and Flatbush.
314 (left) and 308 Stratford Road, two of the hundreds of houses will receive protection from inappropriate zoning with the Flatbush Rezoning Proposal.
Certification by CPC is expected for the Flatbush Rezoning proposal. That will initiate the sequence of approvals under the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, also known as the ULURP clock [PDF]. As I reported in June 2008, there are four major goals for the rezoning, reflecting several of the community concerns that were expressed during Imagine Flatbush 2030:
- Preserve the existing free-standing (detached) single- and two-family houses.
- Match new zoning to existing buildings as closely as possible without "under zoning".
- Encourage creation of affordable housing through incentives.
- Create opportunities for commercial growth.
