Cramped conditions lead to rezoning in north Riverdale
(12/11/04) RIVERDALE Many residents in Riverdale hope new zoning laws will help cut down on overcrowding.
The rezoning, recently passed by Community Board 8, will ban future construction of large multi-family buildings in north Riverdale. Community Board 8 Chairman Anthony Perez-Cassino says a large amount of people in the area made parking and various other conveniences difficult to come by. Perez-Cassino hopes the new ordinance will ease Riverdales population congestion.
Members of Community Board 8 say their next step is to push for tougher building laws near Riverdales woods. Perez-Cassino believes that initiative will also get the green light.
