The proposed rezoning from R3-1, R5, C8-1, and M1-1 districts to R3A, R3X, R4A, R4-1, R4B, and R6A and updating of certain commercial overlay districts, is intended to protect neighborhood character from out-of-character development, reinforce established development patterns, and direct opportunities for moderate residential and commercial growth to locations along wide streets and transit resources, including Jamaica and Atlantic Avenues, Community District 9, Borough of Queens (ULURP No. C 120195 ZMQ) (the "Application");
 
WHEREAS, the Decision is subject to review and action by the Council pursuant to Section 197-d(b)(1) of the City Charter;
