This Committee works closely with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) to examine the best usage for the existing manufacturing zone, referred to as the New Amsterdam Special Use District in the 197-a Plan as currently being considered in the West Harlem Rezoning effort.
Meetings were held with the Land Use and Zoning Committee. Presentations by NYC’s Fresh Initiative representatives to discuss bringing healthy supermarkets, including a Farmer’s Market to West Harlem.
