These Statements of Community District Needs, prepared by New York City's community boards, provide a context for development and assessment of their budget priorities. Pursuant to Sections 230 and 231 of the City Charter, community boards submit annual expense and capital budget priorities which must be considered by city agencies in the preparation of their departmental budget estimates.
Material preceding each statement, supplied by the Department of City Planning, summarizes district demographic and land use characteristics. The district profiles include:
- Population counts from the 1980, 1990, and 2000 censuses. 2005 population estimates are listed for the City and borough totals based on Department of City Planning estimates as adopted by the Census Bureau in September 2006. For more information on the 2000 census, see www.nyc.gov/planning;
- Resident births and deaths within New York City, 2000 and 2006, from data prepared by the New York City Department of Health;
- 2000 and 2008 income support levels -- Public Assistance, Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid-Only (excluding nursing home cases) -- provided by the New York City Human Resources Administration from their Medicaid Eligibility File;
- Total land area from the Department of City Planning's 2007 LION street and District base map files; and
- Land use in 2008, from the city’s Real Property File providing the number of tax lots, lot area and percentage of total lot area in each land use category. Lot area is in thousands of square feet and excludes lots with missing dimensions. Lots with certain classifications, such as land under water, are categorized as “Miscellaneous”. The land uses of joint interest areas, which are not part of any community district, are assigned to appropriate categories in the borough and citywide profiles. For example, Central Park is counted as “Open Space Recreation” in the Manhattan and New York City profiles. City and borough land use totals may therefore exceed the sum of the community districts.
This edition of Community District Needs features day care and Head Start centers, senior centers, public libraries, and city-owned cultural institutions. Based on 2006 and 2007 data, maps of each community district show the location of these facilities. The maps are keyed to lists of the facilities with addresses and capacities.
This edition continues to include borough maps of City Council districts and computer-generated base maps of community districts. The base maps are available on the Department’s website and sold in the Department’s bookstore. Summary 2000 census data are provided. Each district profile also contains a listing of line-item projects funded in the Fiscal Year 2009 Capital Budget. More information by community district, including land use maps and selected community facilities, is available at the Community Data Portal.
The Department hopes that these statements will prove useful to communities and agencies planning for future programs and services. We welcome suggestions for the next edition of Community District Needs.
