On September 7th, 2017, the New York City Council approved a rezoning of Downtown Far Rockaway in order to activate long-vacant sites, increase access to housing and retail opportunities in the neighborhood, and help the area realize its potential as the commercial hub of the peninsula. The Access to Opportunity transportation study worked with agencies involved in the rezoning's Roadmap for Action plan to make sure plans for the larger Eastern Rockaways study area would complement and align with revitalization efforts in Downtown Far Rockaway. For more information about the rezoning and related projects in Downtown Far Rockaway, visit EDC's project website.
