Local Study

Gathering information about existing conditions and creating a vision for a future project.

For example, Brooklyn Community Board 16 is working on several local studies in Brownsville, including an economic development study and beautification project. All studies are done in collaboration with students and include different surveying elements.

Community Boards use local studies to produce reports, maps etc. For example, see Manhattan Community Board 3’s publications of all the local studies created by their planning fellows.
