Plans to preserve the character of more than 260 blocks in two Queens neighborhoods are now being scrutinized by perhaps the toughest judges of all - the people who live and work on those blocks.
Rezoning review for two neighborhoods
Public review began Monday for the proposed rezoning of 44 blocks in the Waldheim section of Flushing and 220 blocks of Laurelton, said City Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden.
The local community boards - C.B. 7 for Waldheim and C.B. 13 for Laurelton - have 60 days to review the proposals and make recommendations. The plans will then be vetted by the borough president, the City Planning Commission and the City Council.
