    Keep goyim out of our community! Lately many Lubavitch landlords are renting to yuppies, years ago such people would have been embarrassed to show their faces in public, due to the many times the Rebbe urged to keep the community growing with Jewish residents. Please don’t let all the hard work many people dedicated over the years go to waste.

    Because the zoning is the only thing standing in my way. Nothing to do with money or anything

    But there will have to be some type of voluntary oversight or we will have people building window-to-window, cutting off each other’s sunlight / privacy, etc. There are halachos regarding these issues.

    If a person does some research they would hope this proposal gets accepted. Then the houses can be greatly expanded like borough park out Williamsburg. However, the dynamic and beauty of the smaller home size will likely quickly be lost leading to a more urban and more dense housing redevelopment. Not withstanding, growing communities need growing housing! R6 and r7 allow for homes up to 60 get tall. For example a typical 4 floor house with a smaller set back 5 floor like you see all over borough park are examples of r6 zoning.

    keep the houses small so that there remains at least a semblance of character

    R-4 as well?

    R-4 as well?

    R-4 is not mentioned in the CHJCC letter. Please tell me R-4 is being considered as part of the rezoning to R-6. R-2 is only a small area.
