Coney's Rezoning Process Forges Ahead

The city's plan for the Coney Island redevelopment marches on as it enters the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). A gathering by Community Board 13 was held this past Monday, October 6th with some city officials and CIDC members prior to a certification meeting at the Department of City Planning on October 14th. / Bay News writes:

Community Board 13 Chair Marion Cleaver said that she will enter next week’s meeting with an open mind, but that she is nonetheless “torn” over the city’s rezoning proposal.

“To me [there should be] more amusements,” Cleaver said. “I understand the reasoning behind the residential component of it but looking at Coney Island with everything almost gone and trying to envision Astroland gone is sad.”
