Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

Bronx County (Bronx) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Jerome Avenue Rezoning may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. A public scoping session will be held on September 29, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. at the Gould Memorial Library Auditorium, Bronx Community College, 2155 University Avenue, Bronx, NY 10453. The Draft Scope of Work is available for download at: http://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/applicants/scoping-documents.page.

The action involves a proposal by the New York City Department of City Planning for zoning text amendments, zoning map amendments and city map changes (collectively the Proposed Actions). The proposed zoning text and map amendments would rezone an approximately 73 block area primarily along Jerome Avenue and its east west commercial corridors in Bronx Community Districts 4 and 5 and 7, (Rezoning Area), and would establish the Special Jerome Avenue District coterminous with the Rezoning Area. The proposed city map changes are located a block outside of the Rezoning Area in the Highbridge neighborhood of the Bronx, Community District 4, New York. The Proposed Actions include:

1) Zoning map amendments to rezone portions of existing C4-4, M1-2, R8, C8-3, and R7-1 with R7A, R8A, R9A, R7D, and C4-4D districts and C2-4 commercial overlays.

2) Zoning text amendments to:

  1. Establish the Special Jerome Avenue District, coterminous with the Rezoning Area. The proposed special district will include regulations that will add controls to the ground floors of buildings within mapped commercial overlays and districts, modify height and bulk regulations on lots fronting the elevated rail line, modify bulk regulations on irregular lots, and establish controls, such as discretionary review provisions, for transient hotels;
  2. Establish proposed R7A, R7D, R8A, R9A, and C4-4D districts as Mandatory Inclusionary Housing areas, applying the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program to require a share of new housing to be permanently affordable where significant new housing capacity would be created.

3) City Map changes to map Block 2520, Lot 19 as parkland and de-map Corporal Fischer Place (street) between Nelson Avenue and Shakespeare Avenue. The Proposed Actions are expected to result in a net increase of approximately 3,250 dwelling units, 72,273 square feet of community facility space, 35,575 square feet of commercial/retail space; and net decrease of 47,795 square feet of industrial space and 98,002 square feet of auto-related uses.

The analysis year for this proposal is 2026.
