The ad hoc NBR Review Committee was appointed in February 2017 to address key zoning and planning issues in the Neighborhood Business Residence District (NBR) that became apparent as concerns were raised in the Zero Place SEQRA process. From March through August, the committee met every other week.

The NBR Review Committee’s recommendations are available online HERE.
