Partner and chair of Herrick's Land Use and Zoning Group, Mitch Korbey, was quoted in Crain's New York Business in an article discussing the issues faced by the de Blasio administration in its goal to rezone 15 New York City neighborhoods before the end of the Mayor's term. There exists an on-going conflict in the effort to do what’s best for the City's growth while respecting the requests of the people living in the communities surrounding the proposed rezoned areas. Mitch stated that the "localized decision making on a rezoning versus the need for citywide planning is a colossal struggle...[t]he mayor has had successful rezonings but it takes a comprehensive dialogue and a tremendous amount of work with the communities involved.”
