Three new residential developments that have been proposed for the Two Bridges neighborhood are about to undergo a joint environmental review by the City of New York. During a normal environmental review, each development would be considered separately. In this case, the projects are being considered together because of their proximity to each other and their timing. This is a new kind of process and because of this, elected officials and the developer teams behind the three proposed projects have agreed to host an additional four meetings at the beginning of environmental review. The meetings will be professionally facilitated by an outside urban planning firm to help the Two Bridges community discuss, learn about, and contribute to this public environmental process.
This website has been created to allow anyone interested to learn basic information about the proposed projects, the environmental review process, and how to get involved in upcoming meetings. The first, second, and third meetings were held in December 2016, January 2017, and March 2017. The final meeting was held on June 24, 2017.
The Draft Scope of Work has been published, and can be found on DCP's website here.
