Park Slope residents want rezoning proposal to cut out high-rise buildings
South Park Slope community members are hoping that a new rezoning proposal by the city planning department will halt upcoming development of high-rise buildings.
Residents say a recent surge of blueprints for high-rise buildings would destroy the character of their neighborhood. The new proposal calls for implementing a zoning amendment that would preserve the low-rise character of the area. Some residents say they are not against all development, they are just concerned about their quality of life.
Community Board 7 is set to review the proposal next week. The hearing is open to the public and Brooklyn residents are encouraged to attend.
