Greenpoint 197-a Plan. The City Council adopted the plan, as modified and approved by the City Planning Commission, on January 30, 2002. The plan represents a decade-long effort by residents, local community organizations, business leaders and Community Board 1 to fashion a blueprint for how the community's neighborhoods can best be developed, its problems addressed, and its promise achieved. It offers a comprehensive set of recommendations for the community, which includes the East River waterfront with some largely vacant potential redevelopment sites, the industrial Newtown Creek waterfront, Bushwick Inlet, McCarren Park, industrial enclaves and a variety of residential and mixed-use neighborhoods.

The plan's recommendations propose a long-term vision for the Greenpoint community that includes a publicly accessible waterfront, a restored housing stock in existing residential neighborhoods, opportunities for new housing, commercial and light industrial uses in rezoned areas along and upland of the East River waterfront, an expanded historic district, revitalized commercial streets, a significantly improved environment, and a high quality of life for its residents and workers.
