Morningside Heights Planning Study

The New York City council writes ” [MHHC]… embarked on a process that has been designed to culminate in a rezoning application led by The City Council, the Borough President, and Community Board 9, instead of by a City agency – which in itself would be an unprecedented action, conferring unusual power to the community. But beyond that, and perhaps more importantly, this has been a truly community-led planning study. In Morningside Heights, residents and stakeholders themselves conceptualized the opportunity, led years of community engagement, and brought forward a draft zoning framework.

This study is a result of that work. The recommendations it puts forth are not a panacea for all the challenges Morningside Heights faces, but they are a start. We hope this study can serve as an instrument to facilitate further input from community residents and provide an opportunity for all members of the Morningside community to participate in this process.
