Downtown Revitalization

Responsibilities of Office

In 2004, the Town of Babylon created the Office of Downtown Revitalization to revitalize aging, under-performing downtowns, and commercial corridors throughout the Town of Babylon to create or recreate vibrant downtowns that feature:

  • A range of housing options
  • A variety of activities and amenities
  • Pedestrian friendly sidewalks and streets
  • Public space to foster a sense of community
  • Enhanced and preserved green space
  • Preserved unique character of neighborhoods
  • A variety of services and shopping opportunities 

The principles of smart growth and sustainability are the cornerstones of our efforts.

As a department, we focus on land use and development in downtown centers, areas that already have adequate infrastructure (including public transit), and areas that are recognizable as downtowns and neighborhood centers.
