Print What is Zoning? Guidebook

This guidebook uses simple diagrams to show you how zoning works in NYC. It takes you through use zoning, size and shape zoning (including Floor Area Ratio), and how proposed rezonings could affect neighborhoods. It also includes a collection of community protections that could be advocated for during a community-led rezoning, and the book fits in your pocket, so you can be sure to have it with you at your next planning commision meeting.

This guidebook is also included with the Zoning Toolkit.
