It will be at least another year before the discussion about whether and how to rezone Inwood reaches a conclusion. A meeting on Thursday evening, where residents roundly denounced the latest de Blasio administration proposal, suggested it will be a very long year.

EDC’s reps stressed how much they had listened and how much the plan had changed over two years of public engagement. But residents said their input had largely been ignored, and argued the most troublesome parts of the mayor’s plan remained unchanged.
