Sheridan-Hunts Point Land Use and Transportation Study
Planning Process

Introduction | Context | Planning Process | Public Participation | Study Resources

Beginning in June 2011, the City conducted an interdisciplinary planning process focused on creating a holistic vision for the Sheridan-Hunts Point area. The SEHP planning process involved the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, the Department of City Planning, Department of Transportation, New York City Economic Development Corporation, Department of Housing Preservation and Development and the Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability. Through public meetings and design charrettes and a Community Working Group, the study engaged the broader community and stakeholders.

A full range of engagement tools, including land-use planning exercises, charrettes, and site visits, were used to help community stakeholders gain a shared understanding of the existing conditions and challenges and consider how the community’s goals and needs could be met through multiple scenarios, including retention, redevelopment, or transformation of the Sheridan Expressway into a boulevard. The broader area beyond the Sheridan was considered and special attention given to improving access to Hunts Point. Local priorities were used to guide the planning process and ultimately form recommendations.

A key element of the City’s study was the collection of in depth information about area transportation and land use used to conduct analysis. The City’s analysis included:

  • Traffic network analysis, including all of the critical elements of the road network that affect access to Hunts Point and other destinations in the study area.
  • Hunts Point truck study, to gather up-to-date information on access to industrial areas including Hunts Point, a critical economic driver for the Bronx and the region.
  • Land use analysis of the surrounding area and the options identified during the community visioning process
  • A comprehensive sustainability analysis of different options
