The City Planning Commission approved the rezoning of 180 blocks in Flatbush, and the proposal will now move on to the City Council, which will likely vote on the plan in late July. The rezoning area is bounded by Caton Avenue,Parkside Avenue and Clarkson Avenue on the north; Bedford Avenue and the Community District 14 boundary to the east; Campus Road and the Long Island Railroad’s Bay Ridge freight line on the south; and Coney Island Avenue on the west. According to the Department of City Planning Web site, the proposed zoning would be in keeping with the existing buildings in the area, which includes detached homes, row houses and apartment buildings. The current zoning has no established height limits, and tall apartment buildings have gone up in the area where single-family homes used to stand. The new zoning also provides incentives for affordable housing in the area and commercial growth.
