JOIN Public Workshops, where participants will be able to more closely examine some of the key issues we have already heard about through your input, and participate in a mixture of interactive and educational activities. We look forward to your participation on Thursday November 12 @ 5050 Skatepark (354 Front Street), or on Saturday November 14 @ PS 65 (98 Grant St, at the Corner of St Pauls Avenue)!

This is an opportunity for residents, businesses, local neighborhood groups and elected officials to work with the city to craft a comprehensive neighborhood plan to create a new mixed-use district on the North Shore of Staten Island to support the borough’s downtown neighborhoods, providing a wider range of retail and services to meet the needs of existing residents while expanding affordable housing options for a range of income groups and populations including seniors and young adults within walking distance of the ferry.This effort builds upon the recommendation of the North Shore 2030 report to create a vibrant downtown environment providing stronger connections to the NY Harbor.

The planning process aims to support affordable housing development, encourage economic development, create a more vibrant street life and public spaces, promote a more resilient community on the waterfront and introduce new community resources to foster a more equitable and livable Downtown Staten Island.

It intends to leverage the $1 billion in public and private investments already underway in St. George and along the Stapleton Waterfront to support the surrounding neighborhoods. The large development projects at the NY Wheel, Empire Outlets shopping mall, the former Coast Guard site, the new Staten Island Supreme Court building and Stapleton Waterfront are setting the stage for the long-desired vibrant “downtown” lifestyle desired by many Islanders. The Bay Street Corridor between St. George and the historic Tappan Park in the Stapleton Town Center is adjacent to three stations on the Staten Island Railroad, and is served by a number of local and express bus routes that provide connections throughout the island. It is within walking distance of the Staten Island Ferry and an easy commute to Manhattan.
