Public Review
Overview | Existing Context and Zoning | Proposed Zoning | Public Review
On May 19, 2008 the Department of City Planning certified the Uniform Land Use Review (ULURP) application (C 080429 ZMQ) and referred the related text change application (N 080428 ZRQ) for the Dutch Kills Rezoning to begin the formal public review process. In addition to the applications for zoning text and zoning map amendments, a draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was issued on May 16, 2008. On July 23, 2008, a public hearing was held for both the DEIS and ULURP applications. Comments were accepted at the hearing and for ten days following the hearing, until August 4th, 2008. All relevant comments were incorporated into the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and a PDF Document Notice of Completion for the FEIS was issued on August 29th, 2008.

CPC Modifications
On September 8, 2008, the City Planning Commission approved the actions with the following zoning text modification: that within the Dutch Kills Subdistrict in areas not zoned M1-3/R7X and within the proposed M1-2 District outside of the Subdistrict, the maximum FAR would be 3.0 for certain uses listed in Use Groups 16A, 16D, 17A and 17B and photographic or motion picture production studios or radio and television stations listed in Use Group 10A. These uses would continue to be subject to the height and setback regulations of an M1-2 District.

The original proposal allowed a maximum FAR of 2.0 for all light industrial and commercial uses in areas not zoned M1-3/R7X. This modification to an FAR of 3.0 would allow reasonable expansion opportunities to production oriented businesses that have traditionally been part of the mixed-use character of Dutch Kills, and it would allow them to build under a flexible envelope of up to 60 feet before setback for the purposes of expansion or maintaining their business.

City Council Modifications
On October 7, 2008, the City Council approved the actions with the following zoning text modification: that within the Dutch Kills Subdistrict in areas zoned M1-2/R6A and within the proposed M1-2 District outside of the Subdistrict, the maximum FAR would be increased to 4.0 for certain uses listed in Use Groups 16A, 16D, 17A and 17B and photographic or motion picture production studios or radio and television stations listed in Use Group 10A.

The original proposal as modified by the City Planning Commission allowed a maximum FAR of 3.0 for certain uses listed in Use Groups 16A, 16D, 17A and 17B and photographic or motion picture production studios or radio and television stations listed in Use Group 10A.
