Rezoning: Proposing & Modeling Zoning Code Changes for a Growing Suburban Municipality

The Village of Port Chester, NY commissioned this study to analyze its existing zoning code, propose modifications, understand potential growth, and visualize as-of-right development allowances. Port Chester has experienced a boom in commercial and residential real estate over the past few years. Amending its zoning code was the next step in encouraging high-density development around the train station and waterfront.

Use of ZoneIQ
From viewing max build-out to maniuplating code changes, running future growth scenarios, and illustrating amendments for municipal stakeholders, all data models were generated using the proprietary Gridics 3D zoning management engine.
Results
The Village of Port Chester approved and adopted the code changes proposed through this study and continues using our models to illustrate zoning changes in 3D. Our software facilitated the public engagement process through better visualization and transparency.
