ENB - Region 2 Notices 12/3/2008

Negative Declaration

New York County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed East Windsor Terrace Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed zoning map amendment affecting five blocks within the Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn Community District 7. The area is currently zoned R5, R6, and R7A and is within the Special Ocean Parkway District. The rezoning area is bounded by a C8-2 zoning district along Coney Island Avenue to the east, an R5 district south of Caton Avenue, an R7A and R7B district to the north along Caton Place, and an R7A district along Ocean Parkway to the west. The proposed action would replace the existing R5, R6 and R7A districts with R5B and R6A districts. Also an R6A/C2-4 overlay district would be mapped along a portion of Caton Avenue.

The proposed rezoning is intended to preserve the existing neighborhood built character by limiting new development to heights and densities consistent with the existing built context. It is expected to result in a reduction of allowable residential floor area, and create about 21,933 square feet of commercial space and 12,533 square feet of community facility space on Caton Avenue. The analysis year is 2018. The project is located within the Special Ocean Parkway District, a special purpose district that runs along Ocean Parkway from Fort Hamilton Parkway at the north to Brighton Beach Avenue to the south in Brooklyn Community District 7, New York.
