Park Slope Rezoning Proposal - Approved!
Introduction | Neighborhood Character & Existing Zoning | Zoning Proposal | Additional Maps
The zoning map amendments to Zoning Sectional Maps 16c and 16d described in these pages (ULURP number C 030194(A) ZMK) were approved by the City Planning Commission on April 2, 2003 and adopted by the City Council on April 30, 2003.

The Department of City Planning proposes a zoning map amendment to rezone 110 blocks in Park Slope, Brooklyn in Community District 6. The goals of the rezoning are to preserve the historic scale of the brownstone neighborhoods, and provide increased opportunities for residential and commercial development on Fourth Avenue.

The rezoning area is generally bounded by Union Street to the north, 15th Street to the south, Prospect Park West to the east, and Third and Fourth Avenues to the west. A section of Fourth Avenue between President and Warren Streets is also included in the rezoning area. In 1993, the northern portion of Park Slope between Flatbush Avenue, Fourth Avenue and Union Street was rezoned to contextual districts; this rezoning would extend these districts south to 15th Street.

The proposed rezoning would replace the existing R6 district with R6B and R7B contextual designations in midblock areas and avenues where rowhouses predominate, with R6A along Third, Fifth, and Seventh Avenues and a portion of 9th Street, and with R7A on Prospect Park West. Along Fourth Avenue, the proposal would replace the R6 district south of Union Street and the R7A district north of Union Street with R8A. The rezoning would replace C1-3 and C2-3 commercial overlays with C1-4 and C2-4 overlays, and would establish additional commercial overlays to reflect existing land use. The proposal also includes changing a C4-3 district on Fifth Avenue to C4-3A, a portion of Fourth Avenue's M1-2 district to C8-2, and an area of M1-2 to R6B.
