The Land Use Committee of Community Board 8 reviews applications for zoning changes, variances,  historic designations, and building permits in historic districts.

The September meeting include a review of a zoning change application from the owners of 587 Bergen Street. The property is currently zoned M1-1 and is vacant. The owners are asking that it instead be included in the boundary of the neighboring R6B zone to allow for the construction of a four-story apartment building. An earlier presentation by the owners indicated the building will contain 26 apartments, with 10 being affordable, and 13 below-ground parking spaces.
