Reimagining Brooklyn Boulevard
The City of Brooklyn Center is reimagining development along Brooklyn Boulevard, and will be proposing practical yet visionary improvements to our current and future land uses along the corridor. Initial recommendations include identifying sections of the Boulevard that could accommodate more, and more closely built development. The largest and densest development would be guided to major intersections, and provide neighborhood-scale commercial and/or housing. A market study is being completed to inform what types and how much development is feasible, while ensuring affordability. A draft of the study will be available in fall 2020 for public review and comment.
While this is different than the roadway reconstruction project, the Land Use Study is coordinating with the team redesigning the Brooklyn Boulevard roadway to ensure a cohesive and vibrant corridor.
The City is not recommending or planning that any existing buildings be removed unless the current owner willingly sells or redevelops their site.
As the City works on identifying these opportunities, it needs your help in identifying how land might be used to more fully benefit ALL people in Brooklyn Center. The below link will send you to a 7 question survey to help inform recommendations and strategies.
