Here’s What You Need to Know About the Mayor’s Citywide Rezoning Plan

(DNAINFO) Amy Zimmer and Danielle Tcholakian  | December 1, 2015 — Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to change some of the city’s existing zoning regulations as part of his 10-year plan to create 80,000 new affordable units of housing and preserve another 120,000.

The 526-page plan has implications for every neighborhood in New York City.

Department of City Planning officials have visited community boards to convince their members — whose input is only advisory — to support the two proposals.

But the boards have overwhelmingly voted “no,” worried the changes won’t yield enough affordable housing or that a “one-size fits all” approach doesn’t respect individual communities’ needs.
