Hundreds march against rezoning plans for Jerome Ave.

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Hundreds of residents gathered Saturday for a march to voice their displeasure with the city's rezoning plans for Jerome Avenue.

The Bronx Coalition for a Community Vision gathered at Keltch Park for the march and were represented by labor unions and community groups throughout the Bronx.

Residents say they are frustrated with the city's plan and believe their requests for career track jobs, deeper affordable housing and anti-displacement policies have been ignored.

Community members released a report during the event that they believe will do more to prevent potential small business displacement along Jerome Avenue.

Some people at the march said they just want the city to consider the requests of the people who live in the Bronx and want what is best for their neighborhoods.
