The Jersey Street Community Visioning Report summarizes the results of the community engagement process conducted from March-June 2023. The report is attached to the Jersey Street RFP, and development teams responding to the RFP are strongly encouraged to consult the report and thoughtfully respond in their proposal. After the development team for the Jersey Street Site is selected, HPD and the development team will continue to provide regular updates to Staten Island Community Board 1 and other community stakeholders.
No one understands neighborhood conditions and needs better than those who live and work in the community. HPD values this expertise, which is why community engagement is central to the affordable housing development process. The goal of this outreach is to build upon the previous engagement to identify priorities for housing, retail, services, and public space.
The predevelopment engagement process will culminate in the publishing of a Community Visioning Report (CVR) that summarizes this engagement. The CVR as well as any public presentations or other engagement materials will be linked on this webpage. The CVR will be attached to the Jersey Street RFP, and development teams responding to the RFP are strongly encouraged to consult the CVR and thoughtfully respond in their proposals. HPD will evaluate how well development teams incorporate the community vision from the CVR in their submissions. More information about the RFP process can be found in the RFP Process & FAQs tab.
HPD conducted preliminary outreach on the Jersey Street Site as part of the Bay Street Corridor Neighborhood Plan which was led by the NYC Department of City Planning (DCP) and approved in 2019. The 2019 Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) approval included approval of development of affordable housing and amenities on the Site.
