What Is ULURP?

WHAT IT IS. ULURP may sound like a monster (and some people think it is), but it stands for Uniform Land Use Review Procedure and it’s the process by which major land use changes get reviewed and approved in New York City. It’s long, complicated, and involves lots of players, making it difficult for communities to understand how they can have a say in the land use decisions that impact their neighborhoods.

CUP is developing a new toolkit in our Envisioning Development series, called What Is ULURP? The workshop tool is a way for people to learn about the ULURP process, the different players involved, and the role they can play in decision-making. Get hands on with the process as you take a sandwich through all the layers of government and public approvals!

CUP develops and tests the tools in workshops in communities all over New York to ensure that they will best meet the needs of a broad range of advocates and organizers throughout the city.

WHERE IT WORKS. The toolkit works in organizing settings, staff trainings, college classrooms, Community Board meetings, and lots of other places. CUP can train you, your staff, or your members to run a workshop, or we can run a workshop for you. Workshops can range from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.

HOW TO GET ONE. We can arrange workshops anywhere in the five boroughs with 3-4 weeks of notice.

Workshop prices start at $375. Some organizations may qualify for reduced rates depending on the ability to pay, audience reached, and level of customization.
