Staten Island North Shore - Land Use & Transportation Study


Introduction   Strategies   Neighborhoods   Implementation

The Department of City Planning and the Economic Development Corporation are pleased to announce the release of North Shore 2030: Improving and Reconnecting the North Shore’s Unique and Historic Assets, the culmination of a collaborative two-year effort among City and State agencies, over 200 local experts – residents, business leaders and civic stakeholders - to craft a vision for the North Shore of Staten Island. The final report details long-term recommendations necessary to meet the 2030 Vision that will guide public and private investment and land use decisions over the next 20 years.

It was critical to all North Shore stakeholders for the city to identify short-term projects where the city and other agencies could focus efforts to advance the community’s 2030 Vision. To that end, the North Shore 2030 Action Agenda highlights the city’s new short-term commitments and the on-going work of the agencies in the borough’s North Shore neighborhoods. Please review the Implementation page for a complete list of the 2030 Vision recommendations and the North Shore 2030 Action Agenda.

PDF Document Executive Summary

PDF Document Chapter 1: The North Shore Context
The North Shore Land Use and Transportation Study was initiated at the request of Mayor Bloomberg’s Staten Island Growth Management Task Force as a response to the call for government to coordinate its efforts and comprehensively plan for the future of this five-mile long stretch of working waterfronts and historic communities.  This Chapter describes the study area, the North Shore’s key assets, challenges, opportunities and the issues prioritized through the public engagement process.

PDF Document Chapter 2: Capitalizing on the North Shore’s Assets
This Chapter identifies four overall strategies for revitalizing and reconnecting the North Shore’s key assets – its waterfront, historic streets, neighborhood centers, and the former railroad right-of-way – so that they better serve residents, businesses, and visitors over the next 20 years.  Read more about the strategies.

PDF Document Chapter 3: Applying the Strategies – Neighborhood Opportunity Areas
North Shore 2030 presents an ambitious vision for improving and reconnecting the North Shore’s historic assets over the next 20 years.

PDF Document Chapter 4: Implementation and Coordination
The realization of this 20-year vision will require the participation and diligent oversight of a multitude of stakeholders. The final report is designed to provide clear priorities to all of those who will ultimately implement the proposed vision for the North Shore — local and regional agencies, developers, property owners, civic leaders, local elected officials and both current and future residents.  The final report includes a full list of recommendations, and the North Shore 2030 Action Agenda outlines the City’s new short term commitments and ongoing initiatives. Read more about implementation.
