A busy block in Brooklyn is the site of an Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) under construction. When a neighborhood such as this requires new infrastructure, executing the project often consists of overcoming many hurdles. As in many cities, New York has zoning resolutions, which often differ from one neighborhood to the next or overlap and intertwine, not always reflecting what the neighborhood may need. One thing nearly all zoning laws have in common is the arduous processes involved in wading through the text to find applicable provisions for each project. Once established, there is an even lengthier process for receiving variances or easements to overturn them to better suit a project’s needs.
