The Zoning Resolution is a blueprint for the development of New York City. During the Bloomberg administration, the Department of City Planning has used zoning in remarkably innovative ways to address a range of issues, such as economic integration, access to fresh food and sustainable development.
The Department of City Planning is now taking orders for the new edition of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York. This new edition is a complete reprint containing all previous text and mapping amendments enacted since 1961, including 36 zoning text amendments enacted since October 2009 and 50 updated zoning maps. Most significantly, this new edition contains the eagerly-awaited Key Terms Clarification text amendment which required changes on over 850 pages in the Zoning Resolution.
The new edition of the Zoning Resolution also includes:
New residential streetscape preservation standards
The requirements for FRESH food stores
New Mixed Use Districts in Brooklyn and the Bronx
14 new Inclusionary Housing designated area maps in Appendix F
Additions to the Lower Density Growth Management Area rules
Changes within the Hudson Yards, West Chelsea, Tribeca, Garment Center, South Richmond and College Point Special Districts
Text revisions for 15 Penn Plaza, Flushing Commons and Riverside South developments
CEQR designations are now easily accessible in Appendix C and Restrictive Declarations can now be found in Appendix D
The full list of revisions since October 2009 will be included with the new Resolution.
