SoHo NoHo Neighborhood Plan

On October 7th, 2020 Mayor Bill de Blasio formally announced the start of Public Process for SoHo/NoHo Neighborhood Plan following the six month Envision SoHo/NoHo community engagement and planning process that began in January 2019 and ended in November 2019 with release of the summary of findings and recommendations in the Envision SoHo/NoHo Report. Manhattan Community Board 2 participated as a member of the Envision SoHo/NoHo Advisory Group. Early in the Envision SoHo/Noho process in April 2019 CB2 passed a resolution to help inform CB2’s role in the process. CB2 also conducted a public hearing on January 15, 2020 to solicit feedback on the Envision SoHo/NoHo report.

In late January 2021, The Department of City Planning, Manhattan Borough President and Council Member Margaret Chin announced that they will be co-hosting a series of information sessions in the coming months. “Each session, joined by involved city agencies, will focus on specific aspects of the Neighborhood Plan. This will be an opportunity to learn more and ask questions specific to the theme of each event including housing, quality of life in a community where businesses and residents live in close proximity, arts and culture and more. Input gathered from these sessions will help inform the ongoing work to further develop and refine the SoHo/NoHo Neighborhood Plan.”

More information on each Info Session Series is available on the Department of City Planning’s SoHo NoHo Neighborhood Plan website. Please visit the website for details on how to join each Info Session.

The first remote Info Session Series will be Housing Update on Feb. 3, 2021 at 6:30 p.m.

The format will be a presentation followed by a Q&A.
