Interactive Workshop: A Citizen’s Guide to NYC Land Use Review


What is ULURP anyway? Ever wondered how the City’s land use review process works? Wanna know who decides what development happens in our neighborhood? How can regular people plug in to that process and make their voices heard?

Join NAG, El Puente, & the Center for Urban Pedagogy for an interactive workshop about ULURP, the City’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure and get the answers to these questions and more!

Last week during his State of the City speech, Mayor Bloomberg referenced two sites on the North Brooklyn waterfront.  On the Southside, updated plans for the redevelopment of the Domino Sugar factory site are beginning to emerge.  Further north, the development of the Greenpoint Landing site is set to start this year.  While Greenpoint Landing should be able to move forward without more review due to it’s inclusion in the 2005 rezoning, the new developers of the Domino site may choose to make enough changes to the approved plan that they will need to go back through the City’s Land Use Review procedure, known as ULURP.  It can be a confusing system to those who don’t know the rules and parameters. Come and learn how to be a part of the process…

Lots to talk about and learn along with our friends from El Puente and theCenter for Urban Pedagogy at NYC Land Use Review: a Citizen’s Guide, an interactive workshop.  6:30pm at El Puente’s Community Health & Environment Center, 289 Grand Street, Williamsburg.  RSVP on Facebook.
