The City Council Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises will hold two public hearings next week on the de Blasio administration’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing and Zoning for Quality and Affordability proposals, which were approved by the City Planning Commission Wednesday morning.
The MIH hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 9, at 9:30 a.m. in Council Chambers. The ZQA hearing is the following day, at the same time and place.
Testimony can be delivered at the hearing or submitted electronically: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“These two proposals could shape development in this city for decades to come, so we plan to take a full and thorough look at the finer points of both plans,” said Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Laurelton), chairman of the Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises. “I look forward to gaining more insight from the administration, elected officials, residents and developers on how these strategies will affect them, as well as what is in their best interest.”
