Exciting Project Opportunity
Urban Planning and Historic Preservation
South Bronx, New York
A leading grass-roots community organization in the Mott Haven and Port Morris neighborhoods of the South Bronx is seeking creative partners to complement our waterfront advocacy efforts.
We have been advised to work to obtain preservation status for historic structures on our South Bronx waterfront. We are seeking a qualified individual or class group to work closely with our Director to move forward on this priority project, which will serve as a step towards achieving public access in an under-served community saturated with polluting facilities.
This effort will entail historic research and interaction with government officials and community residents. In addition, there is opportunity for photo documentation, sketch and drawing and model making work of these tasks accommodate your academic requirements. Our goal is to prepare a State and National Registries nomination in cooperation with our elected officials and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. And to create a vision plan for the future use of the site as a local art and ecological resource. Interest in urban planning, preservation and environmental issues important. With wide latitude for independence of thought, work hours and strategy.
