Project Description: How do municipality maximize the economic benefits of a strong real estate market while ensuring establish, diverse-income communities are not displaced by rapid gentrification and critical resources are used to improve distressed housing conditions? This is the focus of housing needs assessment about City of Yonkers, specifically looking at the southwest quadrant that has the highest concentration of poverty in the city. The study is compiling quantitative profile of residents and workers in Yonkers, describing demographic trends as well as the citys economic capacity with its industrial base, development and fiscal health. The study's unique approach is to not consider the housing challenges of one isolated project or one development site or even one housing type. It is trying to formulate a long-term road map that could govern all aspects of housing, inclusive of zoning regulations that could facilitate development and financial mechanisms to help close financing gaps. The project team anticipate the housing report will not only serve as a tool for Yonkers as it formulates long-term housing policy, but could also serve as a model for other cities contemplating housing policy studies. Community Impact: Yonkers has witnessed an accelerated pace of luxury housing development in the last 10 years near its Hudson River shoreline. These new housing units, almost all above median income, have attracted new investments and increased tax revenue. Yet established residents-especially those at lower income levels-risk displacement as a result of this urban revitalization. Housing study is an effort to ensure voices of residents and community stakeholders are heard and that their input can be weave into detailed housing policy strategies tied to a comprehensive framework for community, fiscal and economic development. Several strategies are being used to collect meaningful input. First, project team has organized several public workshops in which multi-lingual facilitators will collect information from Yonkers residents on barriers to renting and purchasing housing, quality and condition of existing housing, ideas for improving neighborhood quality of life and feedback on potential housing policy reforms. Team is also gathering resident input as they walk through downtown. Finally, interviews are planned with local nonprofits to draw upon their knowledge of Yonkers housing needs.
