Community Input Meetings

Help us build a Bright Green Future

Re-Imagining Parks

Community Input Meetings are your opportunity to share your vision and thoughts for your neighborhood park with us, so that we can create thriving open spaces for your neighbors and for all New Yorkers.

What is a Community Input Meeting? Before we re-design or rebuild a park, we ask for feedback from stakeholders in the community. We want to understand how our capital project can help this public space better serve the neighborhood. At these meetings, we’ll ask questions about topics such as how you arrive at the park, what you do when you go to the park, what you would like to do that you can’t do now, and much more! We want to hear from as many different and diverse voices as possible in order to understand the full extent of the community’s vision. After the meeting takes place, the design of the capital project to improve the park will begin. Learn more about how we build parks and the next steps in our Capital Projects process.
