PREPARATION OF LAND USE AND ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS
Following the Interdivisional Meeting, DCP will provide applicants with clear, written guidance on the land use and environmental applications. DCP suggests that any applicant that needs a Reasonable Worst Case Development Scenario for their project wait to prepare the land use application until after the applicant first meets with DCP’s Environmental Assessment and Review Division.
Draft land use applications should be prepared following the guidance discussed with DCP and as described in the Interdivisional Meeting minutes. Applicants should submit 3 paper copies and 1 digital copy of each application to the Lead Planner, or to Central Intake ONLY if the project is located in Manhattan. Draft CEQR Forms and Environmental Assessment Statements can be submitted to Central Intake in 2 paper copies and 1 digital copy.
LAND USE FORMS AND STANDARDS
Land use applications consist of a land use application form and attachments that clearly describe the proposed land use actions and any development that may be facilitated by, or approved, as a part of the proposed actions.
