197-A & 197-C Plans

To date, thirteen 197-a plans have been adopted in New York City.  Eleven were sponsored by community boards (two by Community Board Six); one by a borough president and one by the Department of City Planning.

197-a Plan
197-a Plans are the means through which Community Boards actively develop and document their own ideas for local planning and development. Through the Land Use committee, CB6 has prepared a comprehensive 197-a Plan that covers the easterly and waterfront portions of the district and reflects our vision for orderly and intelligent development in those areas. In particular, the 197-a Plan pays special attention to our waterfront and urges the City to see that all development is consistent with a continuous waterfront esplanade along the East River.

The plan was sponsored by CB6, modified by the City Planning Commission, and adopted by the City Council on March 13, 1997. The plan provides a policy framework, in the form of seven planning principles, to guide the planning, design, and creation of public open space and compatible revenue-generating uses along the East River waterfront between 18th and 23rd streets.
