Borough President Melinda Katz has recommended against a zoning application for a new medical facility opening on Central Avenue in Glendale.
The owners of the ambulatory and diagnostic site were looking to reduce the number of required parking spaces from 42 to 21.
The applicant conducted a parking study, and concluded that the proposed facility would only demand roughly 35 parking spots. They said within a 5-minute walk, there is sufficient street parking, even during peak hours.
But Community Board 5 disagreed, questioning the validity of that survey.
The board ultimately voted 29-2 against the rezoning proposal last October.
After hearing the applicant’s case last November, Katz’s office ultimately issued the same recommendation.
