Sunnyside Gardens Rezoning - Approved!
Proposed Zoning
Introduction and Public Review | Existing Context | Proposed Zoning

With the recent designation of the Sunnyside Gardens Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will now regulate construction within the Sunnyside Gardens Historic District, which generally coincides with the boundaries of the SGPC district. The proposed text amendment seeks to relieve property owners within Sunnyside Gardens of the burden of applying both to the Landmarks Preservation Commission and to the City Planning Commission for modifications to their properties.

The proposed text amendment would eliminate existing City Planning Commission special permit requirements for development, enlargement, or substantial alteration of landscaping or topography in the Sunnyside Gardens Special Planned Community (PC) Preservation District. The proposed regulations would make all properties within the underlying residential and commercial districts of the Special District subject to the regulations of an R4 district. (See the PDF Document zoning comparison table). The proposed uniform R4 regulations will result in predictable construction consistent with the historic character of Sunnyside Gardens. The proposed text amendment also maintains the existing prohibition on curb cuts.
