Webster Avenue Rezoning Now in Hands of City Council

The rezoning of a long, auto shop-strewn stretch of Webster Avenue between Fordham Road and Gun Hill Road is now moving into its final stage -- scrutiny from the City Council, which must sign off on the plan.

For more background on the rezoning plan, click here. But basically, over the past few years, Community Board 7 has worked with the office of City Planning to up-zone Webster Avenue to encourage more residential and retail development and, at the same time, down-zone select neighborhoods in Norwood and Bedford Park.

Over the coming weeks, the Council will hold three meetings to discuss the Webster rezone plan:
--March 15, 9:30 a.m., 16th Floor Hearing Room – Zoning Subcommittee (Hearing & vote)
--March 16, 11 a.m., 16th Floor Hearing Room – (Full) Land Use Committee (Hearing & vote)
--March 23, 1:30 PM, Emigrant Savings Bank (49-51 Chambers Street) -- Stated Meeting (Vote)

The public can sign up to speak at the March 15 zoning subcommittee hearing. The actual vote on the plan will be on March 23.
