Seven years ago after Richmond Hill and Kew Gardens were rezoned, the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation, began the quest for Woodhaven to be rezoned. We approached the Woodhaven Residents Block Association, elected officials, Community Board 9 and the Woodhaven Business Improvement District for their support, which was so important.
The recent approval from Community Board 9 is the first hurdle of this rezoning process. When finalized, this plane will preserve the fine character of our Woodhaven homes and assist our commercial properties so that their integrity can be maintained and perpetuated.
This was a momentous vote, and Woodhaven thanks the community board, for its support with the unanimous vote. We are now on the path to secure the present character of our Woodhaven for perpetuity. This is an important first victory for all of our community.
