On Wednesday, members of the de Blasio administration revealed a 21-point revitalization plan for Jamaica, Queens. According to deputy mayor Alicia Glen, the plan is meant to "harness the interest of the community" and follow through on some of the promises of the unrealized 2007 rezoning. The plan calls for streetscape improvements, various affordable and mixed-income housing projects, strategically placed NYPD cameras, an entrepreneurship program, and other neighborhood improvements. "The implementation of the Jamaica Now action plan will create the growth and revitalization that this community has needed and deserved for so very long," said Community Board 12 chair Adrienne Adams.
