City of Yes: Paving the Way for More Housing in NYC

The City of New York’s Department of City Planning introduces the “City of Yes for Housing Opportunity,” a zoning reform initiative designed to combat NYC’s housing crisis. This proposal seeks to revise outdated zoning laws to facilitate the creation of more affordable homes across every neighborhood.

Key Proposals Include:

  • Accessory Dwelling Units: Enables adding small residential units to existing properties.
  • Building Conversions: Simplifies the conversion of non-residential buildings into homes.
  • Faith-based Organizations: Assists in developing underutilized lands.
  • Transit-oriented Development: Promotes housing near transit areas to reduce car dependency.

The public review process starts in spring 2024, with community input essential for shaping the proposal. For more details and to engage with the process, visit the City of Yes Housing Opportunity page.
