What is ULURP? Launch Party

_What is ULURP?_ Launch Party

We’re excited to announce the launch of the What Is ULURP? Toolkit!

ULURP may sound like a monster (and some people think it is), but it stands for Uniform Land Use Review Procedure and it’s the process by which major land use changes get reviewed and approved in New York City. It’s long, complicated, and involves lots of players, making it difficult for communities to understand how they can have a say in the land use decisions that impact their neighborhoods.

What Is ULURP? Toolkit helps people learn about the ULURP process, the different players involved, and the role they can play in decision-making. Participants get hands-on with the process as they use a sandwich to navigate through all the layers of government and public approvals! Armed with a better understanding of when and how to get involved, community members will be able to more effectively advocate for their needs in public discussions and decision-making on how their communities should be developed.

We’ll be kicking off the launch with a reception on May 3rd, where you can see the toolkit, learn more about the workshop, and celebrate the culmination of three years of research and development that went into creating the toolkit!
