Community Planning

Communities are central to developing solutions for the future of their neighborhoods. In understanding the goals, concerns, aspirations, values, priorities, and vision for a neighborhood, as articulated by the community, the City can more effectively engage with people to plan investments that meet community needs.

HPD's Office of Neighborhood Strategies and partner City agencies are working with communities throughout the city to plan for the preservation and development of affordable housing in a manner that fosters more equitable, diverse, and livable neighborhoods.

Whether it is planning at the neighborhood level, or for specific, City-owned properties, our Community Visioning Workshops strive to ensure that publicly-supported development achieves community objectives. Visit the NYC Neighborhood Planning Playbook page for more information about our process.

For development opportunities, visit our RFEI, RFP, RFQ page.
