A Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) is required if a property owner is requesting a zoning change. ULURP is a standardized procedure with steps that can involve more than several agencies.
Within sixty (60) days after receipt of a Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) application from the Department of City Planning, Brooklyn Community Board 4 may hold a public hearing and submit a written recommendation to the Board, or may waive in writing the holding of a public hearing.
Upon receipt of a copy of a BSA application, when Brooklyn CB4 decides to hold a public hearing, the district office contacts the applicant by email informing them of the date of the board’s next Housing and Land Use Committee meeting, which usually takes place the second Tuesday of the month from September through June. At this meeting the Committee decides on a recommendation to make to the full board.
The full board votes on the committee's recommendation at the following full board meeting that takes place after the Housing and Land Use committee meeting.
After the full board meeting, the district office submits the board's written recommendation to CPC, the applicant, the Borough President and when appropriate, the Borough Board.
