City finally agrees to change outdated Far West Village zoning district

Read GVSHP’s letter to Mayor Bloomberg about the need for rezoning

For over a year and a half, GVSHP and local community groups have been fighting to get the City to change an outdated zoning district in the Far West Village which promotes out-of-scale commercial development.  Though our requests fell on deaf ears for some time, we held Town Hall meetings, staged letter-writing campaigns, and continued to push for a much-needed change to protect the character of the Far West Village.

I am pleased to let you know that the City has now finally agreed to rezone this area of the Far West Village to the zoning district suggested by GVSHP and community groups. This will do a much better job of protecting the character of the neighborhood and preventing out-of-scale commercial development.

Public hearings will be scheduled on the proposed zoning change in the coming weeks, and we will be sure to let you know when those are. Thank you to everyone who helped push for these much-needed changes.
