Senior Project Manager for Brownfield Development

Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation


Description
With community residents leading the way, the mission of Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation (CHLDC) is to build a strong, sustainable Cypress Hills/East New York, where youth and adults achieve educational and economic success, secure healthy and affordable housing, and develop leadership skills to transform their lives and community.

We also engage community residents in planning for the future of the neighborhood. CHLDC led a participatory planning process over the last three years focused on the redevelopment of vacant lots and brownfields in the Cypress Hills/East New York community. Through this planning process, local residents established priorities for the future growth of their neighborhood, including deeply affordable housing, green and open space, manufacturing and more community facilities and services. In addition to establishing neighborhood priorities for overall holistic development and balanced growth, the first phase of this planning process also identified sites for redevelopment and recommended increasing density on development sites in order to build more affordable housing. The next phase of the work focuses on redevelopment of these strategic sites for affordable housing, manufacturing, green and open space, a community center and new commercial uses.

The Senior Project Manager will lead this redevelopment process.
