What feedback are you looking for on Plan Gowanus?
We want your feedback to help shape the neighborhood study! In April 2017, the Map Your Neighborhood tool was launched, which allowed users to place pins on a map of Gowanus and identify what they liked or needed improvement – resulting in over 225 pins! To share information about the working groups, Plan Gowanus was expanded with sub-pages centered on these topics with more map-based tools and meeting materials.
Over the past year, we’ve been busy with outreach and have recently been coordinating with city agencies to develop a framework to serve as a roadmap for goals and strategies related to land use and urban form, infrastructure and services, and other planning topics in Gowanus. In conjunction with the release of the framework, we want to your feedback on how to improve it, tell us what’s missing or needs to be added, and share ideas in an open forum (add link).
Please be advised that this platform is not intended for city agencies to respond to immediate service needs, such as potholes or noise complaints. Contact 311 for these urgent concerns.

Why study Gowanus?
During the winter and spring of 2017, working groups were held in coordination with city agencies around topics of Arts and Culture, Housing, Industry and Economic Development, Public Realm, and Sustainability & Resiliency. The working groups met 26 times, totaling more than 80 hours. For more information on the meetings and see notes and presentations, click here (link to be added). In July 2017, a working group summit was held to share recommendations and which one’s were supported by city agencies, require additional information and/or research, or either not feasible or beyond the study scope (add link).Past public events have included the Kick-Off Event (October 27, 2016), Sustainability & Resiliency Meeting (December 8, 2016), Land Use and Urban Design Workshop (March 25, 2017), and a Schools, Transportation and Community Resources Event (October 19, 2017).
