Washington Heights and Inwood Planning and Land Use Study
City College Architectural Center
March 7, 2008
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 makeup “Northern Manhattan” and comprise Community District 12 (CD12). After consultation with City agency representatives and their elected officials, CB12’s 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.
