Land Use

John Douglas
Director of Land Use & Topography


A Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) is a City Charter-mandated procedure where an application requesting a change in zoning is publicly reviewed with mandated timeframes. The ULURP process involves the Department of City Planning (DCP), Community Boards, the Borough Presidents and Borough Boards, the City Planning Commission (CPC), the City Council and the Mayor.

For more information, visit the Department of City Planning’s ULURP website.


Pursuant to Section 201 of the New York City Charter, the Brooklyn Borough President will hold a remote ULURP public hearing, on the matters listed for each hearing, on the respective dates.

Please note that remote hearings will be recorded for public transparency.

For information on accessibility or to make a request for accommodations, such as sign language interpretation services, please contact Stephanie Guzman at [email protected] at least five (5) business days in advance to ensure availability.
