Richmond Hill-Woodhaven rezone approved
From DNA Info:
More than 200 blocks in central Queens will get the first rezoning in decades, after the City Council approved it Wednesday.
The Woodhaven and Richmond Hill rezoning was crafted in response to concerns raised by Community Board 9 and local elected officials who were trying to prevent overdevelopment and preserve the area’s character with its one and two family homes.
The new zoning, covering 229 blocks, will allow for larger construction along the commercial areas on Jamaica and Atlantic Avenues.
