The city’s plans to “revitalize” the Village, or “Downtown Far Rockaway” as they call the project have received final approval.  You can learn more about these plans on our What’s New page, here.  The BCA Board feels that the plans are mistaken.

Questions about the city’s plans to reconstruct downtown Far Rockaway - click here.  And the Community Board’s Ad Hoc Committee reccomendations here.  For more information, go to What’s New.

Note that the plans don’t do much to revitalize downtown Far Rockaway but do include over 3,000 new housing units in buildings as tall as 15 stories.  Make your voice heard!
