What is the Office of Downtown Revitalization?

In 2004, the Office of Downtown Revitalization was created to:

  • Revitalize aging, underperforming downtowns and commercial corridors throughout the Town of Babylon
  • To create or recreate vibrant downtowns that feature:
    • Pedestrian friendly sidewalks and streets
    • A range of housing options
    • A variety of activities and amenities
    • Public space to foster a sense of community
    • Preserve the unique character of neighborhoods
    • Preserve and enhance green space

The principles of smart growth and sustainability are the cornerstones of our efforts. Prioritized and focused land use is encouraged in downtown centers or areas that already have adequate infrastructure including public transit, and are recognizable as downtowns/neighborhood centers.
