The basic boundaries of the planned rezoning are the Queens-Midtown Expressway to the north, Woodhaven Boulevard to the east; Forest Park, Mount Lebanon Cemetery, Cypress Hills Cemetery, Mount Carmel Cemetery, Beth-El Cemetery, Union Field Cemetery, Mount Judah Cemetery, Cemetery of the Evergreens, and Knollwood Park Cemetery to the south; and Cody Avenue, the Bay Ridge Division of the Long Island Rail Road, the LIRR Montauk Line, and 59th Street to the west and the southwest.
According to the application, the objective of the recommended zoning changes is to replace existing zoning designations with newer, lower density and contextual zoning districts to more closely reflect the existing built form of the neighborhoods, thereby ensuring that future development will be more consistent with its surroundings.
