How does this new Bullard-Sitt twist impact the process for the City's Comprehensive Rezoning Plan for Coney's Island? In their latest meeting, this time with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, the city seems confident and forging ahead with their process.

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce's Real Estate & Development (RED) met with Coney Island Development Corporation president, Lynn Kelly and The New York Department of City Planning's Brooklyn office representative Purnima Kapur along with Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park owner and operator Dennis Vouderis to go provide members of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce members with an update on the planning and rezoning efforts

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle writes:

“The Environmental Impact Statement is almost complete, certifying will come in the next few weeks — possibly by the end of January or early February — and then ULURP [the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure] can begin,” said Kelly, speaking at a panel on Coney Island yesterday sponsored by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and its Real Estate and Development Committee.

“Following ULURP, we will be issuing an RFP for a developer,”
she said.
