GOWANUS — ‘CITY OF YES for Housing Opportunity’ is the topic of Community Board 6’s Landmarks/Land Use meeting on Thursday, May 23, at 6:30 p.m. A representative from the Department of City Planning will be presenting the proposal, which includes a number of zoning reforms that would make it possible to build more housing in most neighborhoods by allowing more housing density if affordable, converting vacant commercial buildings to residential/shared housing, ending parking mandates for new buildings and numerous other changes. City of Yes for Housing Opportunity is one of three initiatives, which the Adams administration says will support small businesses, create affordable housing and promote sustainability. 

People can attend in person at The Van Alen Institute, 303 Bond Street, or via Zoom (registration online).
