    The New York City Department of City Planning is a municipal government agency charged with planning the citys physical and socioeconomic landscape. It executes its urban planning mission by amending zoning and land-use rules. The mayor, the borough presidents, and the public advocate appoint its City Planning Commission, a 13-member board. The mayor appoints its chairman, who serves ex officio as the director of the department. From 2002 to 2013, Amanda Burden served as commission chairwoman and department director. Her overhaul of zoning laws, the biggest such change since 1961, paved the way for residential development on disused post-industrial sites across the city. Carl Weisbrod replaced Burden in 2014. The department is responsible for changes in the City Map and provides technical expertise on transportation, community facilities, demography, and public space. -TA
