This year-long process brought together residents, workers, elected officials, and City agencies to highlight the community’s priorities and shared vision for the future of Hunts Point through a series of surveys, focus groups, workshops, interviews, and open houses.

I think the most successful thing we've accomplished in the plan so far is engagement. We've been able to put all our minds together and understand that we're all in this together. There is no separate planning, there's joint planning, and when we come out of this, it will have been a collaborative joint effort that gets us to a different place.

A Guiding Voice

The Working Group was the core guiding voice for Hunts Point Forward. It included local community leaders and residents who have been involved in Hunts Point for decades. They ensured that a broad range of participants took part in the planning process, facilitated open and transparent conversations with the community, and ensured that the resulting recommendations formed a cohesive strategy that will provide real solutions to area challenges, including:

  1. Public health and social resilience
  2. Jobs and financial security
  3. Access and mobility

The Impact for Hunts Point

In the past year, the City, elected officials, and local leaders, have accomplished a lot toward the fulfillment of “Hunts Point Forward.”
