West Brighton Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA)
Following up on the North Shore 2030 Report’s recommendations, the NYC Department of City Planning (DCP) is partnering with the West Brighton Local Development Corporation (WBLDC) to work with the community and stakeholders through early 2015 to craft a strategic plan for the West Brighton area with the goals of improving public access to waterfront and public parks, supporting new and existing maritime industrial uses, expanding retail and community services and providing a safe, multi modal transportation network along Richmond Terrace. The planning process will consist of evaluating existing conditions -- such as land use, zoning, transportation, infrastructure, socioeconomics, market conditions and retail trends -- and result in a proposed zoning and infrastructure framework to support these long-term goals for Staten Island’s North Shore.
The study area boundaries include both waterfront and upland properties, stretching from Westervelt Avenue in the east to Rector Street in the west and including the neighborhoods of New Brighton and West Brighton. This planning effort is being completed in coordination with the Port Richmond Brownfield Opportunity Area to provide transit opportunities, and neighborhood connections from St. George to Mariners Harbor.
This effort is funded by a grant from the New York State’s Department of State Brownfield Opportunity Area program. These grants support community-based planning efforts to identify neighborhood revitalization strategies and the redevelopment of underutilized potential brownfield sites.
North Shore 2030: The Department of City Planning and the Economic Development Corporation released the North Shore 2030: Improving and Reconnecting the North Shore’s Unique and Historic Assets in December 2011, the culmination of a collaborative two-year effort among City and State agencies, over 200 local experts – residents, business leaders and civic stakeholders - to craft a vision for the North Shore of Staten Island. The final report details long-term recommendations necessary to meet the 2030 Vision that will guide public and private investment and land use decisions over the next 20 years.
