RFP Issued For Broad Review of North Avenue Development Potential

As the North Avenue streetscape improvement project unfolds in the area surrounding Iona College, the City is taking additional steps to encourage positive private development along our primary north-south artery. We have just issued a request for proposals (RFP) to planning consultants who can assist with a comprehensive review of land use patterns on North Avenue and then recommend zoning and planning initiatives that might encourage economic revitalization, beautification, and appropriate redevelopment. It is past time that North Avenue received the level of attention and investment it needs and deserves, and I hopeful that this planning effort will set the stage for substantial revitalization of the corridor.
