What Is Zoning?

Print What's Going On In The Neighborhood?

New York City’s zoning laws control what can and can’t be built in different neighborhoods. Sometimes they’re used as a tool for preservation, and other times for rapid physical and economic development. In many communities, to build more affordable housing, the existing zoning needs to change. Rezoning – like zoning – doesn’t require anyone to build or tear anything down, but it changes rules that developers have to follow for future buildings.  

But how do rezonings work? And how will they impact your community? To help communities answer these questions, we created What’s going on in the neighborhood?. The fold-out poster explains how a new development can impact neighborhoods and how to get involved in the rezoning process.

CUP is committed to helping housing advocates, community boards, and others teach their constituents about land use and development. This guide is available at the subsidized price for community-based groups. Contact info(at)welcometocup.org for more information and to find out if you qualify.
