Mayor de Blasio: Gowanus rezoning plans are set to pass the City Council

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday that Gowanus rezoning plans are set to pass City Council.
"Today, after almost a decade of effort, the Gowanus rezoning is poised to pass the City Council and take us into the future," says the mayor.
This is the biggest rezoning of the de Blasio administration. It's set to include 8,500 new homes for New Yorkers, 3,000 of which will be affordable.
The plan also includes $250 million to support infrastructure, parks and community amenities as well as an additional $200 million for NYCHA improvements.
