On May 24, 2019, Anastasia Kidd picked up her 1-year-old son from the floor of her apartment in Red Hook, a Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood. A thin layer of dust covered his skin, hair, clothes. “He had dirt all over him,” Kidd recalled a few months later during a community meeting. “I had to close the windows.” Half an island away, several excavators scraped the ground, digging layers of wood, metal, and red bricks that had formed the Lidgerwood complex for more than a century.
Built in 1882, the two-story metal factory was the cradle of booming boilers in the booming city, coffee peeling machines sent to plantations in Brazil, and engines that drilled the Panama Canal. When the foundry left the Brooklyn Boardwalk in 1927, the building went from owner to owner until 2018, when the United Parcel Service, or UPS, bought it and several surrounding properties as part of a plan. to build a 1.2 million square foot warehouse. instead. As excavators wrapped the centuries-old walls of Lidgerwood and cleared the site of its history, a layer of dust covered the neighborhood.
At the time, residents of Red Hook, a mix of black and Latino families who had lived there for generations and wealthier newcomers, had no way of knowing that the UPS warehouse was the first of a facility attack. e-commerce shipping that would extend without hindrance. the neighbourhood.
“During the dark of the night of the COVID confinement, the last mile facilities arrived,” said Andrea, a Red Hook resident who moved to the neighborhood in 2007. (She preferred to omit her last name to avoid confrontation with some of his neighbors.) “That’s when everyone said, ‘What’s going on?'”
As the coronavirus ravaged New York, it changed the consumer culture in the city. Millions of purchases went from in-person to online, and Amazon went “shopping,” as the New York Times put it. In less than a year, the company added at least nine new last-mile distribution centers (online retail store storage before their final destination) in Brooklyn and Queens, quadrupling their total. In Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, more than a dozen others are under construction for service companies such as Amazon, FedEx and UPS.
Nearly 10 percent of Red Hook’s total area now serves as an e-commerce shipping facility, or has been approved. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. Near the waterline, the noise of backhoe and zumba excavators in the background, and large tracts of barren earth, sand, gravel, and dust herald the scale of what is to come.
Community members across the city called for help from the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, a nonprofit, or NYC-EJA. As advocates delved deeper into the cases, it became clear that the new warehouses had three things in common: they appeared close to mostly black, Latino, and low-income communities. They were big, very, very big. And they were appearing in front of parks, community gardens, and schools without any environmental review or community participation process.
“[Communities] found out when there was almost nothing to do,” said Alok Disa, a senior research and policy analyst at the nonprofit Earthjustice, which has partnered with NYC-EJA to promote the regulation of new shipping facilities. There was “a feeling of almost despair and helplessness because they felt so helpless.”
Working with zoning veteran Eva Hanhardt, a member of the Collective for Community, Culture and the Environment, environmental groups found the answer hidden in a 420-page 1961 text, the latest version of the zoning ordinance. New York City. The document sets out different rules for industries depending on the amount of pollution they produce. The less dangerous the industry, the less environmental regulations it had and the closer it could be to being located close to community spaces. The code listed warehouses as the least harmful.
At the time the zoning code was written, it was a fairly accurate assessment. 60s warehouses were generally used to store things before they reached retailers. Merchandise came and went at certain times, and the buildings were relatively small, on average, less than 30 feet or two stories high.
But today’s distribution centers are “creatures of a whole new logistics system,” Hanhardt said. Over the past decade, the size of larger warehouses has more than doubled, from 500,000 square feet to more than a million. The UPS distribution center in Red Hook will be 60 feet tall, twice the height of 1960s warehouses and taller than the Lidgerwood complex it is replacing. The rise of e-commerce platforms and the competition for fast delivery also makes these last mile facilities work all day, every day. Some estimates estimate that modern warehouses can carry around 1,000 additional daily trips by truck to a surrounding neighborhood. The presence of these additional vehicles can worsen local air quality, increasing the risk of asthma, heart attacks and premature deaths.
However, despite this massive jump in size, activity, and pollution, New York City’s zoning code remains unchanged: last-mile facilities built today are still under the 1961 definition of warehouse. And building them causes the same environmental requirements, none.
Experts argue that this is not an exclusive New York issue. The United States is the only industrialized country without a nationalized, standardized zoning code, that is, there is no universal definition of what a modern warehouse is, how dangerous it should be, and where it should be located. · Locar. This has made it difficult for communities from New Jersey and Philadelphia to Chicago, Salt Lake City and the Central Valley of California to reconcile outdated or inappropriate zoning codes with the rapidly changing landscape of e-commerce and shipping.
“The next generation of compliance center already exists,” wrote urban planning expert Rick Stein recently on the expansion of e-commerce compliance centers nearby and into urban spaces, which he calls “Ama-zoning of America “. “Existing zoning codes, many of which were written for a simpler time, are inadequate.”
And without proper environmental regulation, the placement of these new facilities is perpetuating environmental injustices. A recent study by Consumer Reports and The Guardian found that Amazon, which opened more delivery centers in 2020 than the previous four years, has placed 69 percent of all its facilities in neighborhoods with a higher percentage. great of people of color. Amazon did not respond to Grist’s request for comment.
As consumers move more and more online, the United States is expected to need about 330 million square feet of additional storage space by 2025. Prologis, one of the world’s largest industrial real estate companies , which owns nearly 1 billion square feet of industrial warehouses worldwide, said that in the United States alone, e-commerce demand accounted for 25 percent of new leases in the first quarter of 2021. For Advocates of the community and nonprofits, fighting unregulated expansion is like playing a grueling game with every new facility and every one. unique zoning code, said Ivanka Saunders, a policy advocate with the Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability in Fresno, California, another new e-commerce storage hub.
“Cities really need to wake up,” said Disa of Earthjustice. “The evidence is there. This is a completely different animal.”
Red Hook’s character has long been shaped by New York’s industrial policies, which in turn have shaped the nation’s industrial policies.
By the turn of the 20th century, New York had become the epicenter of manufacturing and shipping in the Northeast, attracting people from around the world, including the first wave of Puerto Rican immigrants, who established the first Puerto Rican community in Red Hook. “They arrived in New York by boat, by boat, so they just got off the boat and literally stayed right there,” said Eddie Bautista, executive director of NYC-EJA. He was born and raised in the neighborhood.
Buildings were made larger and taller to accommodate the rush of new people and businesses. The Lower East Side, one of the densest neighborhoods, housed 350,000 people per square mile. People lived, the New York State Housing Commission found in 1900, “crammed into dark, poorly ventilated rooms, in many of which sunlight never enters, and in most which fresh air is unknown “. As the factories grew throughout the city, the outside air became just as suffocating.
In 1913, the city created a commission to propose regulations limiting the height and size of buildings. Three years later, New York passed the country’s first zoning resolution. He created strictly separate residential, commercial and industrial neighborhoods and put a limit on the height and size of the building. The 14 pages of the resolution marked the beginning of land use planning in the United States.
In 1922, by order of President Herbert Hoover, a committee of town planners wrote the State Zoning Enabling Act, or SZEA, modeled on the 1916 New York City resolution. The act allowed U.S. communities to create their own zoning departments and ordinances, but did not require standardized definitions for activities or guidelines on where to place them. Instead of starting from scratch, it became common practice for cities to borrow zoning structure, codes, and definitions from each other, said Sonia Hirt, a planning expert at the University of Georgia who wrote a book that compared the zoning system of the United States with that of other countries. countries.
This meant that New York’s zoning code, as the nation’s first, probably became the basis for urban planning decisions in cities across the country, and with it the designation of a warehouse. as suitable for “unrestricted districts”. By September 1921, only 48 municipalities had enacted zoning laws. In 1923, there were 218. And by the 1930s, all but a handful of states had adopted local zoning laws in some way.
By the middle of the century, urban planners were struggling to adapt new technologies and infrastructure to their zoning codes for decades. Gas stations, airports, landfills, trailer parks, nuclear reactors, cars, school bus parking lots, refrigerator factories, television stations, to name a few, had appeared in the landscape. Cities changed their zoning laws, but it was difficult to keep up. It was during this time that New York City revised its zoning laws, passing its current ordinance.
In 1965, the Federal Urban Renewal Administration and the Department of Commerce tried to help cities standardize land use definitions and categories with the launch of the Standard Land Use Coding Manual, or SLUCM. More efforts to regulate land use, including a federal statute, emerged in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but all failed. The use of the national guide remained optional.
As in the first half of the twentieth century, every time a new industry is born, every people in America has to figure out where to place it. Very often, Hanhardt said, municipalities choose to introduce new uses in old definitions instead of creating new categories. This practice has included storage and warehousing. The last time the national guide was comprehensively updated was in 2000. The document, the land classification standards, includes suggested codes for mini-warehouses, refrigerated warehouses and product warehouses, among others. Despite some recent updates, however, it still omits any mention of expanding e-commerce compliance centers.
With no national requirements, not even guidance, cities are left alone to know what to do with the growing logistics industry. Some, like Howell in New Jersey, are taking the hard step of creating a definition in their zoning ordinances for these facilities to regulate them. Others are expanding their industrial zones to make room for them, perpetuating the environmental injustices incorporated into their local zoning codes. But most, according to experts, are doing nothing, allowing these mega-warehouses to be built on obsolete or inappropriate zoning codes that do not take into account the environmental impact of new e-commerce facilities.
In South Central Fresno, a community nestled in the middle of California’s San Joaquin Valley, residents discovered they had been separated from their own homes years after they passed. It arose in 2017 when a number of residents applied for approval to remodel their kitchens and sell their homes and learned that the city had quietly reviewed its zoning ordinance and classified the area as a heavy industrial district.
That same year, the mayor of Fresno welcomed an 855,000-square-foot Amazon delivery center. As on the other side of the country, in Red Hook, the warehouse was approved as a warehouse, which in this case required little environmental review required by the state to meet air quality requirements. In 2018, the beauty conglomerate Ulta built another facility, covering 670,000 square feet, just one mile from the road.
Although residents did not have municipal water infrastructure, but depended on the backyard wells, the new warehouses next door were able to pump drinking water and sewer water. In addition, some of the larger facilities may be introduced in a new type of zoning district intended to operate. as a buffer between the neighborhood and the heavy industrial area of the city. How, residents argued, can a facility that spans nearly 1 million square feet be considered “light” land use?
As in Red Hook, the answer was partially hidden in the Fresno zoning code. When making zoning decisions, the city looks at what goes on inside and outside the buildings to decide their environmental impacts. The types of warehouses are determined by the types of products they store: chemicals and minerals, industrial equipment, automobiles, feed, wood, commercial products. Warehouses that store goods sold “via Internet orders” are in the same category in Fresno as those that have cleaning supplies and restaurants, despite the much higher traffic they generate.
“Many decision-makers have downplayed and even trivialized concerns about the impacts of air quality on people to justify moving forward with development proposals,” said Ashley Werner, the Council’s lead counsel. Local nonprofit leadership for Justice and Responsibility. It is the trace of particles and benzene that heavy trucks leave in the air, the smog and dust that cover the houses, the light that is poured inside all night.
Flanked by three state highways, 180, 41 and 99, the neighborhood already receives more 2.5-micrometer particulate pollution than 97 percent of the state’s counties, according to the California Environmental Protection Agency. “When you look at the cumulative effects, it’s as shocking as a heavy slaughterhouse,” said Saunders, who works on community involvement in Leadership Counsel.
Katie Taylor lives across the street from the Amazon Delivery Center. Trucks are constantly shaking his house, his engines resonating at all hours of the day and night, sometimes so loud “it looks like someone is knocking on my door,” he wrote in a letter to city hall. The lights across the street are bright enough to interrupt her sleep, and the constant flickering of traffic lights has left her daughter, who has Down Syndrome and Autism, especially restless.
For Yesenia López López, who arrived in Fresno 15 years ago from Mexico, the worst thing about buildings is the extra traffic. “It used to be quieter, like living on a farm,” he said. “Now, there are people and cars all the time.” Before Ulta built its facilities, which López López can see from his home, he had never had a car accident in his neighborhood. Last year, she was hit twice by a car as she was leaving for work before dawn.
The perpetual flow of vehicles has also damaged the community’s already cracked and dusty streets, and the neighborhood has lost its only recreational space: an unpaved strip that runs along the street where the community’s facilities are appearing. last mile. “We used to go out with our neighbors, the elderly,” Lopez said. “The ladies with their husbands were going to exercise, we were walking or cycling. We can’t go out much anymore.”
In 2019, advocates and residents prevented a 2-million-square-foot industrial park with seven massive warehouses from taking root next to Amazon’s facilities. But developers did not give up and another company requested the construction of a 420,000-square-foot facility to expand the Amazon center.
About two dozen residents, some of them represented by Leadership Counsel, pushed to be heard in the planning process. After two months of talks, residents reached an agreement with developers and the city, which required paved sidewalks, safe crosswalks and up to $ 10,000 for each affected family so they could test the windows, install systems air filtration and “basically”. fortify your homes the way you can when you have heavy trucks passing less than 30 feet ahead, ”Saunders said.
Residents and advocates also managed to convince the city to re-evaluate its 2014 revision of the zoning code. Under the proposal, homes and various religious buildings will be reclassified as residential and public use. But even if it is accepted, the people of South Central Fresno will remain surrounded by industrial plots.
This one-on-one approach has left community advocates and activists exhausted, Werner said. Instead, they are challenging the environmental review of the city’s new zoning ordinance, which did not analyze the environmental impacts of new compliance centers. For Werner, a precise definition of e-commerce facilities in the Fresno zoning code is useless if the city does not address the “overview”: how through zoning, cities and counties are routinely managing harmful land uses in color communities without protecting them. . Today, the 97,000 people living in the center, southeast and southwest of Fresno, the areas with the lowest incomes and the highest densities of industrial activity, are 67% Latinos, 23% blacks and Asians together and only 8% white. In contrast, more than half of the residents in the rich areas of Fresno are white. The Fresno Planning Commission did not respond to Grist’s request for comment.
“No matter what the economic development trend at the time, the most shocking harmful uses always go to these neighborhoods,” Werner said. “This is not just a fact of nature. This is intentional. And it’s by design.” One solution is to focus on the underlying bias and be comprehensive, he said.
One hundred and ten miles north of Fresno, a small Northern California community called Morgan Hill could have a solution.
Rumors first appeared on Nextdoor, a hyperlocal social networking platform to connect with neighbors. In May 2019, a user posted an aerial photograph of the city limits of Morgan Hill with the message: “Urgent alert !!! Horrible project on the way!” At the time, the publication explained that a developer named Trammell Crow was planning to build a 1.1-million-square-foot “technology park” that, by all accounts, looked very much like an e-commerce distribution center.
The building would be 55 feet high, have 199 docks for loading and unloading goods, and 752 parking spaces for workers. The site would be located near a high school, a community of seniors and a health center. A small group of residents came together as the Morgan Hill Responsible Growth Coalition, or MHRGC. For months, they handed out pamphlets, sent emails, and went door-to-door to inform the community about the project. In October, hundreds of concerned residents attended a face-to-face meeting of the city’s Planning Commission where developers presented their design.
At the heart of the discussion was the definition of the zoning code for a city warehouse, adopted in 2018. “It’s very broad. It’s very vague. It allows a lot of interpretation,” said Jennifer Carman, who works in the planning department. , for 13 minutes. at the meeting. Then, looking directly at the commissioners, he explained: “Our zoning ordinance does not define a center of execution at the moment. Should it be regulated in any other way than a warehouse and distribution and, or, be prohibited?”
For almost three hours, dozens of people spoke in front of the commission against the project. In the following months, the pressure increased. In October 2020, Morgan Hill City Council approved an amendment tabled by the planning committee that included new definitions for compliance centers and package centers.
The council defined a delivery center as a building with a minimum of 100.00 square feet, 24 feet high and where e-commerce products are stored and distributed to consumers or through a package center, the last step in e-commerce. distribution network, or so-called last mile facilities. Not only did they define new land uses, but they effectively banned Morgan Hill delivery centers. Board members continued to work with the Morgan Hill Responsible Growth Coalition and in April 2021, enacted even stricter definitions: ban buildings over 75,000 square feet; 34-foot-high ceilings over 25 percent of the building; and more than one dock door for every 25,000 square feet.
Closer to New York City, several municipalities are trying to pass similar changes to address zoning gaps. Howell City Council, New Jersey, recently passed an ordinance separating warehouses, defined as “facilities involved in the short- and long-term storage of bulk materials and products … and distributed in bulk with little or any reconditioning, reuse, or disruption of material “and distribution centers, sites that receive, store, separate, and distribute products to individual consumers.
Experts, however, argue that while changing definitions is vital to addressing the inequalities built into zoning codes, it is not a silver bullet. These changes will not address the pollution that communities are already experiencing from existing e-commerce facilities and other polluting industries close to their neighborhoods. They point to the Inland Empire, an area that includes Riverside and San Bernardino counties near the port of Los Angeles, where e-commerce stores arrived 20 years ago.
Last May, the Southern California Coastal Air Quality Management District passed the country’s first piece of legislation regulating indirect sources of pollution – trucks and cars – generated by the giant’s warehouse facilities. Legislation requires warehouses and delivery centers of more than 100,000 square feet, which include about 3,000 facilities in Southern California, to report their pollution impact to the air district, which then scores the impact of each installation. Those companies that get high-impact figures can choose from a list of mitigation options to improve their ratings, such as electrifying part of their fleet or installing solar panels. If they don’t want to comply or can’t reach zero, they can pay a fee that will help clean up the communities.
Bautista, of the NYC-EJA, said many frontline communities are not opposed to all industrial activity, as a certain level keeps property prices low, protecting neighborhoods from gentrification. At Red Hook, this is especially urgent. Ten years ago, Superstorm Sandy completely altered the composition of the neighborhood. When long-time residents who were unable to fix their homes left, richer people came in, raising house prices. Developers began to pay attention, imagining a destination similar to other neighborhoods facing the Brooklyn Sea. Red Hook soon became one of the most expensive areas in Brooklyn to buy new properties.
“What these seaside neighborhoods really want is to be the workplace in the Green New Deal’s new economy,” said Thaddeus Pawlowski, an urban planner and resilience expert at Columbia University, during a panel discussion on expansion of e-commerce facilities in the neighborhood.
Bautista dreams of blue-collar work to build the wind turbines needed for one of the largest offshore wind projects in the country, planned for Long Island Sound. But the crisis at the distribution center has shown him that growth must be done carefully. This is part of the reason why NYC-EJA, Earthjustice, city assembly member Marcela Mitaynes and grassroots organizations UPROSE and The Point CDC launched an instant coalition in the city to include a definition of last mile truck facilities in size-based zoning code. and the number of trips per vehicle per day.
“We would like a special definition or category for e-commerce facilities, which would allow for special permission, public review and / or additional mitigation,” said Disa of Earthjustice. Ideally, the amendment would define last-mile truck facilities based on the size and number of vehicle trips per day, allowing regulators and communities to fully understand the impacts.
Rebecca Weintraub, a spokeswoman for the New York City Department of Planning, told Grist that the department is currently working with several city agencies, including the Department of Transportation and Health, “to better understand where the centers are located. of e-commerce distribution, and even congregate, and their effects on the health of the surrounding neighborhoods. ” He did not specify whether there are plans to revise the zoning regulations in the city.
Bautista recalls what it was like to grow up in Red Hook in the 1970s and 1980s. The city’s bankruptcy left the neighborhood sewer renovation unfinished for months. A building on his block collapsed due to lack of maintenance, killing a man and his daughter. In the following decades, Bautista led the struggles in an attempt to keep power plants and other industrial activities away from the community. Red Hook finally won a decisive battle against a planned waste transfer station next to one of the largest parks in the neighborhood.
An 311,796-square-foot Amazon delivery center is being built on the same site today. For Bautista, this reality is bittersweet.
“You know, I didn’t win this fight just so Amazon or Ikea or any other company could build stores,” he said.
