New rezoning bans large developments in parts of Morris Park
Areas in Morris Park must now adhere to new zoning laws that prevent the construction of multi-family homes and large apartment complexes.
Some Morris Park residents say bigger is not better and they are happy their neighborhood will remain home to small apartments buildings and one to two family houses. The rezoning affects 12 full blocks and parts of 24 additional blocks around Morris Park Avenue.
Community Board 11 says parallel re-zoning laws are being drafted for Pelham Parkway and the Indian Village section of Morris Park.
