The Real Deal New York

‘Planapalooza’ launched to change Port Chester’s zoning rules

Port Chester began the first major overhaul of its zoning since 1975. Village officials want to focus more on the actual look of buildings rather than what they’re used for, Westchester Business Journal reported. Last year the town allocated $650,000 to the project and has now hired Tennessee-based Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative. Those leading the rezoning charge hope to retain aspects locals like about their area while encouraging growth. The Tennessee consultants showcased ideas like a greener waterfront, large mixed-use developments near the train station and streets redesigned around bike-friendly concepts. [WBJ]
