Community Planning and Rezoning in Today’s New York

In the aftermath of approval of the mayor’s revised Zoning for Quality and Affordability (ZQA) and Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) plans, community-led rezoning plans remain sidelined at City Hall. Presentations from several Manhattan neighborhood groups will highlight common challenges, shared goals and sensible approaches to development pressures. Is there a more effective model than New York’s current top-down planning? Communities which have crafted their own rezoning plans or are in the process of formalizing their visions will share their views and experience at this panel discussion. You’ll hear from organizations including Village Preservation, East River 50s Alliance, Landmark West!, Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, Save Harlem Now!, Inwood Preservation, Northern Manhattan Not For Sale, Coalition to Protect Chinatown and the Lower East Side and Historic Districts Council.
This event is also in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of New York City’s zoning laws.
