Union-Utopia Rezoning

Eighty-three blocks in the central Queens neighborhoods of Fresh Meadows, Utopia Estates and West Cunningham Park are currently zoned R-2, and the Department of City Planning proposes the entire area be rezoned to R-2A. The rezoning is designed to keep new development in line with current community characteristics, discouraging larger developments inconsistent with the community’s small, detached home qualities. Community groups support the plan, which awaits City Council approval before becoming effective.
