Chelsea Rezoning
 

Chelsea Rezoning Becomes Effective
On September 9, 1999, the City Council approved the Department's rezoning application for the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The rezoning maps thirty-four new or expanded zoning districts covering more than sixty blocks. The rezoning is intended to preserve the built character of the Chelsea neighborhood while providing new opportunities for housing development. The application numbers were N 990452 ZRM and C 990453 ZMM. The City Planning Commission had previously approved the rezoning on July 21, 1999.

The changes implement the Manhattan Community Board 4 - sponsored plan for the area as approved by the City Planning Commission and the City Council in 1996. Community Board 4 had developed the plan in consultation with the Department under the provisions of Section 197-a of the City Charter. See the March 15, 1999 Department of City Planning press release for more details on the rezoning action.
