The overall intent of New York City’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) is to provide citizens and elected officials an opportunity to comment on pending land use matters.  In 1975 and again in 1989, the City Charter was amended and Section 197-c established ULURP.  It is administered by the Department of City Planning (DCP) and the City Planning Commission (CPC).  ULURP is also one of the specifically noted Charter mandated responsibilities of the Borough President, who under the City Charter must maintain a Bureau of Planning.

In the context of ULURP the Borough President (BP) offers recommendations and commentary pursuant to the specific application only after the Community Board in which the matter is located has taken action on the proposal.  The BP may recommend approving the application, approve it with modifications, or disapprove the application.  Like the Community Board, the Borough President tenders a recommendation to the City Planning Commission which may concur with the Community Board or may not.  Likewise, the City Planning Commission may concur or not with either the Community Board or the Borough President.
