Council moves to approve controversial Cortelyou Road rezoning

The City Council’s Land Use Committee voted to approve the contentious Cortelyou Road rezoning on Thursday, all but assuring its passage thanks to the support of Councilmember Mathieu Eugene.

The rezoning paves the way for the development of a nine-story, 85-unit apartment building on the current site of a Key Food near E. 17th Street in Ditmas Park. Eugene, whose district encompasses the building site, said he was satisfied with the current proposal, and that it was preferable to what the current zoning would allow as-of-right.
