|Land Use Review forms provide the City Planning Commission
(CPC), Department of City Planning (DCP), community boards,
borough presidents, the City Council and other interested
parties with information needed to evaluate applications
for many land use actions subject to city review.
land use actions are subject to the Uniform Land Use
Review Procedure (ULURP), a public review process mandated
by Sections 197-c and 197-d of the City Charter. Zoning
text amendments follow a similar process but are not
subject to ULURP. Other actions require approval by
the City Planning Commission or its chair but are not
subject to ULURP. Such actions include zoning authorizations,
certifications, review of Charter Section 197-a plans,
UDAAP area designations and project approvals, business
improvement districts, and modifications or follow-ups
to previous land use actions.

NOTICE TO APPLICANTS:
Pursuant to Local Law 34 of 2007, as amended, the City is required for the purposes of the Campaign Finance Law to establish a computerized database containing the names of any “person” that has “business dealings with the city”. This term is defined in the law to include the processing of applications under NYC Charter §197-c (ULURP) and §201 ( Zoning Text Amendment).
In order for the City to obtain information necessary for the database, the Department of City Planning/City Planning Commission has adopted an amendment to Chapter 2 of Title 62 of the Rules of the City of New York, which requires that a ‘Doing Business Data Form’ be submitted with all land use applications covered by Local Law 34.
Subject to limited exceptions set forth in Local Law 34, beginning on April 14, 2008, no application for the processing of a land use action under ULURP or for a Zoning Text Amendment will be accepted by the Department of City Planning, unless the ‘Doing Business Data Form’ has been filled out in its entirety. Likewise, on or after April 14, 2008, applications covered by Local Law 34 will only be certified or referred for public review if the ‘Doing Business Data Form’ has been completed. Note that the ‘Data Business Data Form’ must be completed for any applications covered by Local Law 34 which were filed prior to April 14 and have not been certified or referred to date.
The ‘Doing Business Data Form’ is available below. A ‘Question and Answer’ form is also available below to assist you in filling out the ‘Doing Business Data Form. Any further questions should be directed to DoingBusiness@cityhall.nyc.gov.
Completed forms should be included in all new application packages filed at Central Intake, Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street.
