The Department of City Planning proposes rezoning approximately 300 blocks in three neighborhoods in west-central Queens - Middle Village, Glendale, and Maspeth in Community District 5. These neighborhoods are roughly bounded by the Queens-Midtown Expressway, Woodhaven Blvd, Forest Park, Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Cypress Hills Cemetery, Fresh Pond Rd, and 59th St. The objective of the recommended zoning changes is to replace existing zoning designations with newer lower density and contextual zoning districts to more closely reflect the existing built form of the neighborhoods, thereby, ensuring that future development will be more consistent with its surroundings. The proposal would also update commercial overlay zones on the area’s primary corridors to match existing land use patterns and prevent commercial uses from encroaching on residential side streets.

The proposed Middle Village – Glendale – Maspeth rezoning builds upon recently adopted lower-density and contextual rezonings in portions of these neighborhoods, including the Middle Village – Glendale rezoning (March, 2006), Maspeth – Woodside rezoning (May, 2006), and the Middle Village Follow-Up rezoning (August, 2006), as well as the rezoning of a portion of Middle Village in 1994. The Department of City Planning implemented these rezonings in response to requests from Community Board 5, area residents, local elected officials, and civic groups who expressed concerns that the development occurring in these neighborhoods was out-of-character with established development patterns and built contexts. The Middle Village – Glendale – Maspeth rezoning will extend similar protections from out-of-character development to portions of these neighborhoods which had not been covered by previous actions.
