Zoning Laws outdated, nobody drives in the city anymoreFebruary 24, 2015
The de Blasio administration plans to make zoning changes that would affect wide swaths of the city to eliminate parking requirements for some affordable and senior housing, as well as allow for taller and less-boxy buildings.
The changes, detailed Friday afternoon by the Department of City Planning, will be subject to the city’s land-use review process and could be in place as early as this fall. The zoning amendments would, in some cases, wipe away three-decade old standards that have helped shape the city’s landscape—for the worse, some would say. Officials say the changes align closely with Mayor Bill de Blasio’s affordable housing plan, which seeks to build or preserve 200,000 affordable units by 2024.
