At the request of Community Board 3, local civic groups, and elected officials, the Department of City Planning (DCP) proposes a zoning map amendment and a zoning text amendment for an approximately 206 block area in the southern half of the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Community District 3, Brooklyn.  The rezoning area is generally bounded by Lafayette Avenue and Quincy Street to the north, Classon Avenue to the west, Saratoga Avenue and Broadway to the east, and Atlantic Avenue to the south. 

The proposed rezoning aims to preserve neighborhood scale and character, maintain opportunities for mid-rise apartment building construction along appropriate corridors, and allow for residential growth with incentives for affordable housing along the Fulton Street transit and retail corridor.
