In New York City, many struggle with “homelessness, living in poor quality housing, or . . . keep[ing] up with housing costs.” As a result, New York City released a blueprint aimed to address these issues. The five main goals the City seeks to accomplish are:
- Transforming NYCHA housing;
- Addressing homelessness and housing instability;
- Creating and preserving affordable housing;
- Improving the health and safety of New Yorkers; and
- Reducing administrative burden.
The city plans to use multiple methods to meet these goals, such as prioritizing people over parking, where a neighborhood is “transit-rich.” By sacrificing parking space, developers can use that land to construct additional housing. Along with this, the city also plans to rezone neighborhoods so that there is a wider variety of units to accommodate different housing needs.
The city plans to engage various other tools as well, in order to make housing more equitable for all New Yorkers. To see all the methods that the city plans to employ in reaching their goals, view the full report here:
