The largest community board in the Bronx, Bronx Community Board 9 (CB9), serves the communities of Bronx River, Castle Hill, Clason Point, Harding Park, Parkchester, Park Stratton, Soundview/Bruckner, and Unionport. CB9 is currently conducting a long-term planning initiative to understand existing resident needs and develop strategies for neighborhood revitalization and investment. Working with CB9 and local stakeholders, a Capstone team analyzed existing conditions within the community, identified strengths and opportunities, and formulated recommendations and implementation strategies to guide community development initiatives. The final plan laid the groundwork for future land use and public policy efforts aimed at creating a dynamic, mixed-use, mixed-income neighborhood with affordable housing, job-rich commercial and retail uses, and new publicly accessible open space.
