Partner Chris Rizzo Quoted Concerning Proposed New York City Special Natural Resource District
The New York Department of City Planning (DCP) announced the launch of public review for a new Special Natural Resource District to better protect New York City’s greenest neighborhoods in the Bronx and Staten Island, while also offering clear rules for home construction projects in those boroughs. Carter Ledyard partner Chris Rizzo was quoted in States News Service in support of DCP’s proposal, saying, “the amendments provide the right balance of environmental protection with regulatory relief to homeowners … more protection for larger parcels and more incentive to institutions for creating long-term plans for open space protection.”
