In the fall of 2003, the City Planning Commission and the City Council approved the comprehensive plan submitted by Bronx Community Board 8 pursuant to Section 197a of the City Charter. The plan covers the entire community district, including the neighborhoods of Fieldston, Riverdale, Kingsbridge, Kingsbridge Heights, Marble Hill, Spuyten Duyvil and Van Cortlandt Village. It also includes one of the city’s four Special Natural Area Districts, designated in the Zoning Resolution to guide development in areas of outstanding natural beauty. The plan’s goals are to: preserve the scale and character of those neighborhoods; strengthen protections for sensitive natural features; improve the appearance and economic vitality of local commercial districts; foster economic opportunities and access to cultural and educational facilities; create additional recreational resources, enhance existing parks and promote the greening of major corridors; and preserve and educate the public about historic resources.

The Planning Framework below illustrates zoning changes proposed in the plan to achieve its principal goals.
