  • Oct 15th, 2010 Congressman Serrano Announces $1.5 million grant will fund the creation of a vision plan for the Sheridan Expressway and Hunts Point area (Congressman Serrano's Press Release)
    • “These two grants are fulfilling deep transportation and planning needs in our community,” said Serrano. “Meanwhile, the creation of a vision plan that addresses the current and future needs of our community in the Hunts Point area and the Sheridan Expressway is of vital importance. We are eager to remake this area into a livable, walkable and green section of our community, and this is the first step towards achieving that goal. I am encouraged that this grant specifically states that this ‘City-led, multi-agency, holistic planning process will be designed to respond to the needs and goals of the business and residential communities in the area.’ This is precisely the process that all planning in our borough must undergo as we work to right the development and planning wrongs of many decades.”
  • Oct 20th , 2010 End of Sheridan: The Great Highway Unbuilders of the Bronx  (Capital New York) Katherine Jose writes about SBRWA's work to replace the Sheridan with a community development plan, and also discusses the TIGER II grant recieved by the city to create a neighborhood development plan based on SBRWA's Community Plan.
