Downtown Revitalization


In 2004, Town of Babylon Supervisor Bellone 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
  • Preserve and enhance green space
  • Preserve the unique character of neighborhoods

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.
