Dewey Avenue Mixed-use Zoning
Dewey Avenue Revitalization Strategy
The Town of Greece, New York is moving to the next phase of its journey to transform Dewey Avenue into a vibrant, mixed-use corridor, where people of all ages will want to live, work, play, and shop. Over the course of the last decade the Town completed several planning studies including the Dewey Avenue Corridor Study and the Dewey Avenue Traffic Calming Study. These studies articulate a vision for a pedestrian friendly public realm that protects and enhances the desirable character of the Dewey Avenue corridor and, at the same time, promotes a mix of compatible land uses in the commercial districts. To help achieve this vision, the Town retained a planning team, which included Ingalls Planning & Design, to develop a new mixed-use zoning district.
The District was established to create a blend of retail, office, civic, and residential uses within existing commercial areas that contribute to the vitality of the surrounding neighborhoods. Development in this District should promote the health, safety, and general welfare of residents by fostering physical activity, alternative transportation choices, and greater social interaction along Dewey Avenue.
The Dewey Avenue Revitalization Strategy won a Planning Excellence for Implementation Award from the American Planning Association - Upstate New York Chapter.
