New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) selected a team led by the Pratt Center for Community Development to help facilitate a community engagement process to update the 2004 Hunts Point Vision Plan.
The update will build on the success of the original Vision Plan, which has led to city investments, including the redevelopment of the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center into a mixed-use campus.
Starting this spring, NYCEDC and Pratt Center will host a series of public workshops and meetings to gather input and feedback to address community needs and priorities.
Over the next 18 months, NYCEDC and city agencies, in partnership with City Council Member Rafael Salamanca Jr. and Pratt Center, will work with the Hunts Points community to identify ways to bring economic opportunity and new amenities to this South Bronx neighborhood.
