City Planning has released its Resilient Neighborhoods report on Old Howard Beach, Hamilton Beach, Broad Channel. The report is the culmination of work with community members over the past three years. It contains recommendations for zoning changes and other strategies to support neighborhood vitality and help residents and businesses withstand and recover quickly from future storms and flooding.
The Department of City Planning’s Urban Design Principles are intended to be an internal resource for department staff as well as the general public. These will serve those working to improve the livability of New York City’s neighborhoods and those who share our commitment to expand, protect and promote our public realm. The principles provide a foundation for understanding the land use planning and development process.
