The Villager gives us the scoop on the possible rezoning of OLV country

This week's edition of The Villager gives us Al Amateau's piece "In the heights: Hashing out plan for Hudson Square". The informative article gives a variety of individual perspectives on the proposed re-zoning of the printing dis..., er, Hudson Square.

Of the Broome Street block that Our Lady of Vilnius stands on:
"The proposal calls for downzoning short residential blocks on Watts, Broome and Dominick Sts. near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, but David Reck, who presented the Community Board 2 submission last week, said residential property owners on those blocks say the downzoning is unwarranted."

Can a good Samaritan tell this poor aged blogger what "downzoning" means?
