Testimony of Benjamin Dulchin, Before the City Planning Commission Regarding the Proposed "Zoning for Quality and Affordability" Text Amendment

While we do have some suggestions for improvement, and we acknowledge that the proposed text does mean some real trade-offs for communities, we believe the Zoning for Quality and Affordability (ZQA) proposal is worthy of support. The ZQA proposal reflects thoughtful and modest changes to encourage affordable and senior developments, while preserving the types of livable, mixed-use communities New Yorkers value. The ZQA proposal fits with ANHD’s belief that zoning changes should, in all cases, specifically encourage affordable housing development or other community benefits.
