Reimagining Brooklyn Boulevard

The City of Brooklyn Center is reimagining development along Brooklyn Boulevard, and will be proposing practical yet visionary improvements to current and future land uses on the Corridor. As the City works on identifying opportunities, we need your help in identifying how land might be used to more fully benefit ALL people in Brooklyn Center. This 7 question survey will be used to inform recommendations and strategies. 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 and its partners are proposing that sections of Brooklyn Boulevard be reimagined to allow for more, and more closely built development along the Boulevard. The largest and densest developments would be guided to major intersections, and seek to 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. The below questions are based on these proposed changes and market feasibility.

The City is not recommending or planning that any existing buildings be removed unless the current owner willingly sells or redevelops their site.
