We’re excited to launch two holistic community planning processes across District 26. These planning processes will take a holistic look at Long Island City and the heart of District 26 and engage the community through transparent, comprehensive planning frameworks that will develop the vision and goals of the community. The mission is to maximize engagement from a diverse set of residents, community groups, and small businesses to deliver community-driven land use changes for these neighborhoods. The Long Island City Neighborhood Study will culminate with a rezoning, to be voted upon by the City Council.

The Long Island City Neighborhood Study will be led by the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP), with funding from the Adams administration. The study area extends from the East River and Gantry Plaza State Park at the southwest, north to include Queensbridge Houses, the Long Island City Industrial Business Zone, and east to Court Square and 23rd Street. This planning process will aim to unite these disparate areas to create a vision for one holistic Long Island City neighborhood. The study will examine ways to create new housing, economic growth, transit connectivity, and open space, concluding with a neighborhood plan including zoning changes. The study will include proposed land use changes to guide new development in the neighborhood, as well as proposals for capital investments, programs, and services.
