Following last year's Envision SoHo/NoHo process, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the next steps in planning the future of our neighborhood. Make sure to check back here often, as we will continue to update this page with new information as we recieve it. For detailed information on the Envision SoHo/NoHo process, click here.
Per the Department of City Planning (DCP): "Building on the foundation of the Envision SoHo/NoHo process and report, DCP has prepared a draft scope of work for environmental review and is initiating the next phase of public engagement to inform the Neighborhood Plan. Scoping for environmental review will take place in 2020, followed by the development of a zoning proposal that is expected to enter the formal public review process (ULURP) in 2021."
On Monday, October 26th, 2020, DCP hosted a public informational seminar on the draft proposal and more info about the environmental and public review process. A recording is available here. You can also view recordings of other public meetings from throughout this process here.
