At the close of 2004, members of Community Board 12-Manhattan (CB12) began to seek resources for conducting a neighborhood planning and land-use study covering all of Washington Heights and Inwood, the neighborhoods that make up Northern Manhattan and comprise Community District 12 (CD12). After consultation with City agency representatives and their elected officials, CB12 officers and committee chairs determined that a broad-based, district-wide planning study would aid in identifying priorities and in establishing consensus around a set of criteria for evaluating proposed and future development.
At that time the City College Architecture Center was directed by Ethan Cohen and with the aid of a newly hired consultant Rex L. Curry they produced a response to the RFP and began work. The following are links to the product of this work.
