Open Industrial Uses Study Report
On May 15, 2014, the Department of City Planning published a draft of the Open Industrial Uses Study for public comment and review. As of July 15, 2014 written comments were received from a range of organizations and individuals, including elected officials, industrial companies, environmental and community organizations. DCP and the interagency committee greatly appreciate the thorough and detailed comments provided by these stakeholders, and as appropriate, the report may be revised to reflect the comments received.
Copies of the comments are available through the links below:
Opportunities for public input on the study will continue throughout the study process. If you have comments on the report, we encourage you to submit as soon as possible by email to OIUS@planning.nyc.gov.
This report represents 18 months of research and analysis by 14 city and state agencies, engineering consultant team HDR and Parsons Brinckerhoff, along with the participation and feedback of the Open Industrial Uses External Advisory Committee. DCP invites the public to review the draft and to provide meaningful comments by email to OIUS@planning.nyc.gov or through our contact page. The publication of this report is only the next step in the OIUS project; implementation of any recommendations contained in it will be subject to extensive future outreach and vetting by many stakeholders.
