Non-ULURP Application Types
Zoning Authorizations (ZA)
An authorization is a discretionary action taken by the City Planning Commission (CPC) that modifies specific zoning requirements if certain findings have been met. Authorizations are not subject to ULURP review, and the CPC does not hold public hearings on authorizations. The CPC generally refers such applications to the appropriate community board(s) for comment.
Below are comprehensive guides that describe some of the most common actions and their application requirements. For those Zoning Authorizations that are not listed below, please refer to the “General Zoning Authorization Standards” table at the bottom of the page.
