Westchester has never been better positioned for growth. How is the WCA ensuring the county capitalizes on its tremendous potential?
From millennials to empty nesters and startups to Fortune 500 companies, people want to be in Westchester – and developers are responding with dynamic transit-oriented and mixed use projects that are creating new housing, jobs, and revenue. But antiquated land use regulations, confusing approval processes and a lack of resources in many municipalities have kept the county from reaching its full potential.
Driven by an experienced Real Estate & Housing Task Force that includes leading developers, brokers, land use attorneys, architects and planning consultants, the WCA is the foremost advocate for smart growth in Westchester County. The WCA’s advocacy for its members’ projects has helped win approval for billions of dollars in economic development initiatives, and its efforts to streamline the public review process and educate municipal officials are paving the way for a new wave of smart growth.
