Manhattan Community Board 9 197-a Plan. The City Council adopted the plan, as modified and approved by the City Planning Commission, on December 19, 2007. The 197-a plan offers a comprehensive set of recommendations for guiding future development in the community district, which includes the Manhattan neighborhoods of Morningside Heights, Manhattanville, and Hamilton Heights. A significant focus of the plan is on an area where Columbia University plans to create a new campus.

The CB 9 197-a Plan seeks to reinforce and reinvigorate the ethnically and culturally diverse community through a sustainable agenda; ensure that future development is compatible with the existing neighborhood character without displacement; promote good jobs for residents; and provide affordable housing and services.
