Zoning for Decarbonization

July 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

This April, the New York City Department of City Planning proposed amendments to the city’s zoning resolution that would modernize the zoning code to make it easier to meet our climate goals. The proposed changes—referred to as City of Yes for Carbon Neutrality—will cover energy, buildings, transportation, waste and stormwater, and they include recommendations from Urban Green’s 2018 Zone Greener report.

If enacted, these changes will remove some existing barriers to decarbonization projects in the NYC zoning code, and are particularly important for buildings. The amendments are now under a public review period, and members of the public will be able to voice their comments at a City Planning Commission public hearing in July.
