  1. The passing of the re-zoning plan by Community Board #14 is the key component in restoring downtown Far Rockaway to it past glory days when it was referred to as “The Village”. While the Downtown Far Rockaway Plan still has challenges – density, height, traffic congestion, parking, etc., this vote enables our community and government to work in collaboration so that we get it right for the future generations that will benefit from our efforts.
