Adopted 197-a Plans
Return to the Publication List

Section 197-a of the New York City Charter authorizes community boards and borough boards, as well as the Mayor, the City Planning Commission, the Department of City Planning, and any Borough President, to sponsor plans for the development, growth, and improvement of the city, its boroughs and communities. Proposed 197-a plans are reviewed by the affected community boards and borough presidents, and by the City Planning Commission and City Council in accordance with the procedures and timetable set out in "Rules for the Processing of Plans Pursuant to Charter Section 197-a". Once approved by the Commission and adopted by the City Council, 197-a plans are published and distributed, together with any modifications made by the Commission and Council, so that they may guide subsequent actions by city agencies.

Ten plans sponsored by community boards, one by a borough president, and one by the Department of City Planning, have been adopted to date.
