While it may not be apparent to a passerby, the current mismatch of zoning regulations to the current use significantly complicates matters for those who live, work, own, rent or develop property in SoHo.
The SoHo Zoning Guidebook was created to elevate the common understanding of SoHo’s zoning for residents, property owners and businesses who want to meaningfully participate in conversations about the current status and future of the SoHo neighborhood. The guidebook provides examples of the SoHo neighborhood’s history and draws particular focus to the conditions along the SoHo Broadway corridor today.
The SoHo Zoning Guidebook is an educational resource that has been produced in collaboration with a dedicated committee of neighborhood stakeholders, urban planning consulting firm Karp Strategies and the SoHo Broadway Initiative staff.
By the end of August, the Initiative will launch a special section of our website dedicated to the Guidebook that will break down the guidebook content into smaller parts, provide an FAQ as well as links to additional resources and reference material. In the fall, the Initiative is preparing to launch a community outreach and education campaign that will feature the guidebook with opportunities for community members to learn more about the zoning found in SoHo.
