Far West Village Rezoning Promised But Delayed

Last fall, after more than a year and a half effort by GVSHP and allied community groups, the Department of City Planning agreed to implement our requested rezoning of an outdated C6-1 zoning district in the Far West Village which encourages out-of-scale commercial overdevelopment. 

Months later, the Department has still not taken the required next step in moving towards implementation of the promised rezoning, which is to make a public presentation of the rezoning plan. Though we have been told they are “working on it,” almost two years after the original request was made the danger of more inappropriate developments moving ahead under the existing outdated zoning grows every day. A survey by GVSHP showed at least a dozen potential development sites in this six block area, two of which already have active development plans.

GVSHP and allied community groups have written to City Planning Director Amanda Burden urging her to end the delay and publicly present the Department’s rezoning plan next month.
