From the Times Ledger:
The City Council has approved the Cord Meyer rezoning plan for Forest Hills, a move some say will help to curb overdevelopment. But a lawyer representing Bukharian homeowners said the blueprint marks an assault on new immigrants.
Many of the individuals who live in the larger, newer homes in Cord Meyer are Bukharian Jews, a growing population in Forest Hills.
The Council approved the plan July 7 to rezone the 32-block Cord Meyer area.
“It’s a good compromise,” Councilwoman Melinda Katz (D-Forest Hills) said. “The rezoning probably didn’t go far enough for some people and too far for others. You know you’ve probably done the right thing when both sides aren’t happy.”
