NYC Asking Public to Comment on Planning Process

New York City is updating their Uniform Land Use Review Process. Tom Agnotti says there is a lot that is broken and needs fixing.

Agnotti accuses the NYC Planning Department of being "fixated on ad hoc localized zoning instead of planning."

He writes, "Zoning regulates the built environment but doesn't deal with most of the complex issues that New Yorkers care about. It regulates new development but does little to address most quality-of-life issues or solve serious problems in our neighborhoods. And there is an inherent conflict of interest with the city planning department charged with both pushing for zoning changes and with providing information and support to communities that might want to question those changes."
