ULURP Recommendations

One of the key responsibilities of the Borough President’s office is participation in ULURP – the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure.

ULURP is the city’s process for changes to zoning and other actions impacting land use. The Borough President participates throughout the process, reviews all applications, and weighs in with formal opinions – sounding the alarm on bad policy or improper decisions, identifying improvements, or formally approving when a proposal’s merits are overwhelming. The Borough President’s dedicated land use staff, independent of both the mayor’s administration and private development interests, scrutinizes applications on behalf of Manhattan residents.

Most applications are certified or referred out by the Department of City Planning, and then can be reviewed by the relevant Community Boards, the Borough Board (made up of Manhattan’s City Council members and Community Board chairs), the Borough President, the City Planning Commission, and then finally the City Council.

As Borough President, Gale Brewer’s key principles for land use planning are:

Open communication between all parties impacted by an application or policy change;

Early planning before the formal process, to build consensus, avoid surprises, and identify community priorities before it’s too late to address them;

Smart development that accounts for projects’ broader impact on the community and addresses neighborhood needs; and

Maintaining diverse communities, so New York retains the heterogeneous mix of people, businesses, architecture, history, big-city bustle and small-neighborhood charm that make it the world’s greatest urban environment.
