Doris does decoding — again

Doris Diether, zoning expert and longtime member of Community Board 2, is offering her ninth annual series of lectures, “Decoding Zoning NYC,” on five successive Wednesdays, Oct. 15 to Nov. 12.

The classes, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Ave. at 34th St., begin with an overview of the city’s zoning history from 1916 to the present. Subsequent lectures will cover basic zoning principles, regulations on uses and signs, the roles of the City Planning Commission and the Board of Standards and Appeals and public involvement and the interaction of the Department of Buildings with other city agencies in the zoning process. Cost of all five lectures is $135 and individual lectures are $30 each.

The American Institute of Architects will offer academic credit for successful completion of the course.
