Brooklyn
Projects, Studies and Proposals
Active Studies & Proposals:
Canarsie Resiliency
Resilient Neighborhoods - Canarsie
As part of the Resilient Neighborhoods initiative, the Department of City Planning is working with the community in Canarsie to identify changes to zoning and land use and other actions that support the continued vitality of this neighborhood, reduce its risk associated with coastal flooding, and ensure the long-term resiliency of its built environment. Canarsie was selected for the study not only because it was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy, but also because of the very large expansion of the Federal flood maps and unique building types that present challenges to resiliency.
Gerritsen Beach Resiliency
Resilient Neighborhoods - Gerritsen Beach
As part of the Resilient Neighborhoods initiative, the Department of City Planning is working with the community in Gerritsen Beach to review zoning regulations and potentially identify any needed changes to zoning and land use that support the continued vitality of this neighborhood at risk of coastal flooding and ensure its long-term resiliency. Gerritsen was selected for the study not only because it was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy, but also because of the expansion of the Federal flood maps and unique lot sizes and building types that present challenges to resiliency.
Sheepshead Bay Resiliency
Resilient Neighborhoods - Sheepshead Bay
As part of the Resilient Neighborhoods initiative, the Department of City Planning is working with the community in Sheepshead Bay to identify changes to zoning and land use to support the continued vitality of this neighborhood, reduce its exposure to risk associated with coastal flooding, and promote the long-term resiliency of its built environment. Sheepshead Bay was selected for the study not only because it was severely impacted by Hurricane Sandy, but also because of the presence of below-grade bungalows as well as commercial corridors where high flood elevations coupled with below-grade retail spaces exacerbate vulnerability to flooding.
Sustainable Communities
Sustainable Communities - East New York
The Department of City Planning is participating in an unprecedented, bi-state collaboration of cities, counties and regional planning organzations who have united  to form the New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium.  The Consortium was awarded $3.5 million in funding in the inaugural year of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program. The consortium will undertake a combination of regionally and locally oriented initiatives to promote sustainable, transit-oriented development throughout the region. Initiatives DCP leads under the Sustainable Communities program include three studies: a coordinated neighborhood planning study in East New York, Brooklyn; an evaluation of  land use and transportation opportunities near Metro-North Stations in the Bronx; and several activities to advance citywide strategic planning efforts for building climate resilience.
