Step 3: Preparation of Land Use and Environmental Applications

Preparation of Land Use and Environmental Applications

A Zoning Authorization within the Special South Richmond Development District (SSRDD) is a discretionary action taken by the City Planning Commission that modifies specific zoning requirements if certain findings have been met. Authorizations are not subject to ULURP review and the City Planning Commission does not hold public hearings on authorizations. The City Planning Commission generally refers such applications to the appropriate community board(s) for comments.

The BluePRint Team will soon be at work on application standards and samples for SSRDD Authorizations. Check back here for more information.
