How to Get Involved

The Stebbins Avenue Community Visioning Report summarizes the results of the community engagement process conducted from April-July 2023. The report is attached to the Stebbins Avenue RFP in the form of an appendix, and development teams responding to the RFP are strongly encouraged to consult the report and thoughtfully respond in their proposals. After the development team for the Stebbins Avenue site is selected, HPD and the development team will continue to provide regular updates to Bronx Community Board 3.

What We’ve Done So Far

  • April 17, 2023 - We presented to the Bronx Community Board 3 Housing, Land Use and Economic Development Committee
  • April – May 2023 – We launched our website, collected input through our online questionnaire, and emailed key stakeholders notifying them on our planned engagement.

  • June 15, 2023 – We held our public workshop where attendees took part in two planned activities to map neighborhood assets and needs, and learn about affordability levels.
  • Late June – Mid July – We held tabling events at the Morrisania Library, Crotona Park Pool, Community Resource Fair on Boston Rd for a meet and greet of city agencies, and at 174th Street Station.

Our Approach to Community Engagement

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 identify priorities for housing, services, and community amenities. 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 Stebbins Avenue 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 and Frequently Asked Questions tab.
