Non-ULURP Application Types

Zoning Certifications (ZC)

Each Zoning Certification is a distinct land use action and requires specific land use application components.  DCP will advise applicants of the specific application requirements at the Interdivisional Meeting.  For many of our most common actions, we have prepared comprehensive guides  that describe each action and its application requirements.  Please check the list of Zoning Section numbers below to see if a guide has been created for your action.  For those Zoning Certifications that are not listed below, please refer to the “General Zoning Certification Standards” table at the bottom of the page.  DCP will advise all applicants of the proper application requirements at the Interdivisional Meeting.
