LDGMA Text Amendment and Commercial Corridor Rezoning - Approved!
Proposed Commercial Corridor Rezoning
slide show presentation
View the slide show presentation

The Department of City Planning has identified several commercial corridors that are located in residential districts. LDGMA commercial rules and the updated commercial parking lot design guidelines do not apply to these existing businesses since they are not located in commercial districts.

Many of these commercial uses exist because they are either grandfathered buildings built prior to the adoption of the 1961 zoning regulations or they were subsequently allowed through variances approved by the Board of Standards and Appeals. Many of these business owners delay or do not reinvest in these properties due to their uncertain futures.


Task Force Presentations
On April 8, 2010 the Department of City Planning presented this proposal to the Mayor’s Staten Island Growth Management Task Force.  The Task Force recommended that the proposal be presented to all three Community Boards for discussion and to encourage public input.

The proposal was presented on the following dates:
Thursday, April 22 – Community Board 3 Land Use Committee
Monday, May 3 – Community Board 1 Land Use Committee
Tuesday, May 4 – Community Board 2 Land Use Committee


Proposed Commercial Rezonings
The department proposes to rezone three existing commercial corridors to the appropriate commercial districts. This will provide a consistent regulatory framework for their future development.

These corridors include:
