Negative Declaration

New York City (Bronx) County - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Westchester Square Rezoning will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves proposed zoning map changes for all or portions of a 45 block area in the northeastern Bronx neighborhood of Westchester Square in Community District 10. The area proposed for rezoning is a predominately residential area generally bounded by East Tremont Avenue to the north and east, and Castle Hill Avenue to the west.

The proposed amendments to the Zoning Map are as follows:

The proposed rezoning is aimed at preserving the community’s low- to mid-density context of detached single- and two-family homes on inner blocks and apartment buildings along the wider avenues of the rezoning area, and to address parking concerns.

The majority of the rezoning area is composed of detached housing. However, the existing R6 district allows for a variety of housing types including semi-detached, attached, and apartment buildings, which is not reflective of the overall existing built character. The Westchester Square rezoning proposal would limit new development to a housing type and density that corresponds to the neighborhood’s residential context and form. Additionally, the proposed rezoning would match the commercial overlay districts to the development that currently exists.
