Bay News Cover Story - CB13 Drops Brighton Rezoning

This is very good news as Brighton will become one big condo Beach neighborhood to support Coney redevelopment. The Bigger the Better. Get rid of those horrendous bungalows.

Bay News Excerpt -

Community Board 13 no longer considers rezoning Brighton Beach a “priority.”

Each year, the board assembles a list of capital and expense priorities which is meant to encourage city agencies to complete certain projects, such as a rehabilitation of the Coney Island boardwalk. This year’s list boasts more than 50 projects but there’s no request for a rezoning plan for Brighton Beach.

The omission comes months after Community Board 13, at the request of City Councilmember Mike Nelson, voted against the Department of City Planning’s rezoning proposal for Brighton Beach. (Nelson had said he would introduce his own rezoning proposal.)

Following the CB13 defeat, City Planning officials said it’s unlikely that they’d ever again attempt to rezone the neighborhood.
