The City Planning Commission certified its planned rezoning of 180 blocks in Flatbush, Brooklyn, signaling the start of the public review process.

“Flatbush is one of the city’s most architecturally diverse and breathtakingly beautiful residential neighborhoods,” said Commissioner Amanda M. Burden, “The historic 20th century Victorian architecture, generous lawns and mature trees as well as the diversity of its apartment building and active retail character are what make this area so special.”

Flatbush Gardner has more details, including maps and an analysis of how the rezoning plan intends to meet the community’s goals, articulated during the Imagine Flatbush 2030 community visioning process.
