Perlman Place Community Planning’s Goals
Perlman Place Community Planning’s goal is to have a positive impact on what gets developed when 1 and10 Nathan Perlman Place are sold. We want to maintain a productive relationship with MSBI and developers of the properties. We strive to ensure that they recognize and incorporate the needs of the community in their development plans. We are engaged in conversations with our elected officials and actively reaching out to identify and build a coalition of organizations and interested individuals.
Perlman Place Community Planning’s goal is a comprehensive, community-driven plan for the development of the sites encompassing the expressed aspirations and needs for a livable community. At the outset, we think it should include affordable housing, recreation and publically accessible open spaces, and multi purpose and multi- generational facilities that are envisioned as precedent setting, pioneering in concept, and cutting edge in usage and design. This is a unique opportunity to address long- standing needs. In brief they include:
- Housing: A mixture of permanently affordable, supportive, and senior housing that is, preferably, environmentally sustainable.
- Education: Universal pre-kindergarten seats to accommodate the growing number of children in our district.
- Health and wellness: Retain services vital to the health and well being of the community. Maintain community health and wellness facilities and services including doctors’ offices and clinics.
- Community facilities: Community facilities such as recreation and publicly accessible open spaces, and multi-purpose and multi-generational facilities that are envisioned as precedent setting, pioneering in concept, and cutting edge in usage and design. A library can be flexible space for community and seniors.
- Open spaces: Our community suffers from the least amount of parks among the 52 community planning boards in New York City. We will advocate for including publicly accessible open space to be included in the redevelopment of 1 Nathan Perlman Place (which is 28,969 square feet) and 10 Nathan Perlman Place (which is 63,664 square feet).
- Other options include skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, housing for veterans and services for homeless.
Taking into account what we learn through the participation of our stakeholders and working in harmony with MSBI and the sites’ developers/sponsors we are confident of producing a realistic plan that unites their economic goals with our community’s needs and aspirations.
