Rezone - Rosebank, Clifton, Shore Acres and Ft. Wadsworth

Sponsor and submit the Community Board 1 (CB1) Application to contextually rezone our neighborhoods to preserve our neighborhoods from unregulated development immediately.

Why is this important?

Areas of Rosebank, Fort Wadsworth, Clifton and Shore Acres have zoning that does not reflect the character of the existing homes. Single family homes, large properties can be bulldozed, and be replaced with multiple homes or massive townhouse developments. Our infrastructure ( sewer system, schools, emergency services and traffic) is already over-capacity. Overdevelopment can be prevented with contextual zoning, which has been done successfully throughout New York City. CB1 must begin this process by submitting a rezoning application immediately.
