    Post-rezoning evaluation

    Does anyone know of any studies that evaluate large scale rezonings? I am undertaking a project for NYC's Dept. of City Planning to create an evaluation method for past rezonings and am looking for examples of similar studies in order to identify the criteria for our methodology. Any examples of relevant studies are appreciated.

    Are you looking at both downzoning and upzoning?

    In my experience, these analyses are conducted by staff before the zone change is considered and approved by the decision-making body. I've never heard of post-approval evaluations.

    I am looking at any type of rezoning analysis- either upzoning or downzoning.

    RichJake- I agree and that is why i'm having difficulty locating studies of this kind. In particular I will choose two case studies that have experienced at least one business cycle since the rezoning was implemented.

    I appreciate all feedback!

    Downtown Redevelopment Plan

    The City of Clearwater updated and expanded their CRA about six years ago. This included changing the zoning and overlay designations for about 540 acres. I hope this link helps.

    At times like this, you have to ask yourself, "WWJDD?"
