Negative Declaration

New York County (Queens) - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Middle Village-Glendale-Maspeth Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed amendment by the New York City Department of City Planning (NYC DCP) to the zoning map affecting approximately 300 blocks. The proposed Zoning Map amendments will replace all or portions of existing R3-2, R4, R4B, R5, M1-1 and M1-4D zoning districts with R3A, R4-1, R4A, R4B, R5B, and R5 lower density or contextual zoning districts. In addition, some areas within C1-2 and C2-2 districts would be rezoned to C1-3 and C2-3, reducing the distance for most commercial overlays from 150 feet to 100 feet. C1-3 commercial overlay districts would also be established along certain sections of Myrtle Avenue, Metropolitan Avenue, Flushing Avenue and Cooper Avenue, as well as a portion of 69th Street. C2-3 commercial overlay districts would be established along Metropolitan Avenue within the new R5B zoning district between Fresh Pond Road and 64th Street. The project is comprised of four smaller sections: Middle Village bounded by the Queens-Midtown Expressway, Woodhaven Boulevard, Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 80th Street, Juniper Boulevard, and Lutheran Avenue; eastern Glendale bounded by Woodhaven Boulevard, 76th Avenue, 88th Street, 77th Avenue, 80th Street and Cooper Avenue; western Glendale bounded by The Long Island Railroad, 70th Avenue, 69th Place, Myrtle Avenue, 73rd Street, and Mt. Carmel Cemetery; and Maspeth bounded by 59th Street, Mt. Olivet Cemetery, the Queens-Midtown Expressway, and Admiral Avenue in the Middle Village-Glendale-Maspeth neighborhoods of Queens, Community District 5, New York.
