Bushwick Neighborhood Planning Study

Bushwick Housing and Land Use Summit

On Saturday, February 11th, 2017, more than 200 community members attended a Housing and Land Use Summit hosted by the Bushwick Community Plan Steering Committee, Council Members Antonio Reynoso and Rafael Espinal, and the Department of City Planning, and Department of Housing, Preservation, and Development. The workshop provided participants with an opportunity to learn about affordable housing and zoning and discuss the Steering Committee’s draft planning framework and draft housing recommendations. In the interactive sessions, community members mapped out their vision for the future of the neighborhood, including where new affordable housing could be developed, where they feel the existing neighborhood character should be preserved, and where they would like to see more commercial activity.
