Negative Declaration

New York City (Queens County) - The NYC Department of City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Forest Hills/Rego Park Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Department of City Planning proposes to amend the zoning map to change the zoning on all or portions of 61 blocks in the Forest Hills and Rego Park sections of Community District 6, Queens. The proposed action would change the zoning designations within six subareas:

The proposed action is not expected to have a substantial effect on the amount, type, or location of new development within the foreseeable future (i.e., the next ten years). The proposed action is a contextual rezoning that is intended to ensure that future development, should it occur, would be compatible with the existing built form prevalent in the rezoning area. The proposed zoning designations would not increase permitted floor area, and are not intending to induce new development or to affect development patterns. While the proposed rezoning includes the mapping of a commercial overlay district, this would not induce new uses since the subject area is already fully developed with commercial uses.
