Flatbush Rezoning - Approved!
Overview | Existing Context & Zoning | Proposed Zoning | Public Review

  Update July 29, 2009:
On July 29, 2009, the City Council adopted the Flatbush Rezoning. The zoning map and text changes are now in effect.

The New York City Department of City Planning (DCP), at the request of Community Board 14, elected officials and civic groups, proposes zoning map changes and zoning text amendments for one hundred and eighty blocks located in the Flatbush neighborhood of Community District 14, Brooklyn. The project area, which includes the rezoning area and the area of a proposed zoning text amendment, is bounded by; Caton Avenue, Parkside Avenue and Clarkson Avenue on the north, Bedford Avenue and the Community District 14 boundary to the east, Campus Road and the Long Island Railroad’s Bay Ridge freight line on the south, and Coney Island Avenue on the west. The proposed zoning would primarily match new zoning to the existing built character which includes areas of detached homes, row houses and apartment buildings. Currently, existing zoning does not reflect the built character of lower-density detached and apartment building areas. Under the current R6 zoning, development of tall apartment buildings without height limitation is permitted and has resulted in demolition of existing detached, one- and two-family homes.The new zoning also provides incentives for affordable housing development in the area in addition to strengthening commercial corridors.
