EAST HARLEM —​ Local leaders want to hear ideas and concerns from the community about a proposed rezoning of the neighborhood by the city.

Manhattan Community Board 11 rolled out out a survey to assess the needs of the neighborhood as the board plans to review the city’s plan to dramatically redraw swaths of the area that could allow for buildings as tall as 35 stories.

Board 11's rezoning task force created the survey to “ensure the rezoning reflects, preserves, and enhances East Harlem’s unique culture and results in economic vitality, affordable housing, and improved quality of life for all residents.”

The city last year unveiled the rezoning plan, which is slated to undergo the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure next month. That process begins with a review by the community board before heading to the borough president and City Council.
