The New York State Supreme Court has dismissed a case that claimed the environmental review of the Coney Island rezoning plan was inadequate, according to the New York City Law Department. The suit, filed by a group of community advocates under the name “Save Coney Island, Inc.,” claimed that the City Council had overstepped its rights when it approved the Coney Island rezoning plan in July 2009 and argued that the environmental ramifications of the Coney development were not thoroughly researched. But Judge Eileen Rakower dismissed the suit on both grounds, arguing that the environment review was adequate and that taking steps to revitalize the Coney Island economy is within the City Council’s purview.
