Covered projects would be projects for which the City or a non-profit corporation of which a majority of its members are appointed by the mayor is the applicant or co-applicant, that include one or more related applications for a change to the zoning map, a special permit withing the jurisdiction of the City Planning Commission, housing and urban renewal plans pursuant to state and federal law, or the disposition of City-owned property, that changes the maximum residential floor area or density that can be built as of-right on four adjacent blocks of real property.
