How Will Rezoning Impact What Can Be Built?
?Cmo afectar la rezonificacin lo que se puede

Community Impact Impacto en la communidad
Long-term protections for the waterfront that will ensure:
That any future development is in context with existing buildings.
Ensure the affordability of the neighborhood through increase of deeply affordable
housing and protections of existing affordable housing and small businesses.

The SubDistrict D Special Purpose District support the unique elements of


the Two Bridges Waterfront area, adjoining Chinatown and LES as the
historic and continuing home for immigrants and low and working class
residents. Protecting the waterfront protects the entire LES and
Chinatown.

Community Board 3
The Land Use Committee of Community Board 3 voted in support of this plan on November 9th, 2015.

The Community
The community has worked on the CWG for close to a decade.

City of New York


The CWG Plan for Subdistrict D proposes Mandatory Inclusionary Housing with permanent affordability, which is in keeping
with the Mayors housing plan.
Mayors OneNYC Plan calls for all residents to have access to recreation space and sustainable green spaces. There are
already construction plans connecting the East River Esplanade, Pier 35 and the recreational, park and open space
development of Pier 42 with the existing East River Park. SubDistrict D proposes that these areas be zoned and mapped
Park to ensure long term protections for these projects.
The Mayors Plans recognizes that NYCs uniqueness and strength lies in its diversity and welcomes new immigrants. DCP
has continued to support Special Purpose Districts to address the unique aspects of specific areas, which often set specific
use and bulk (including height) regulations that overlay and modify the underlying as-of-right zoning.
Certificate of No Harassment legislation will be introduced in November 2017. The CWG plan calls for exactly this kind of
anti-harassment legislation in the whole neighborhood, and so we are calling for CB3 to be included in that legislation.
