The Village of Mamaroneck and the Industrial Area Committee (IAC) have compiled a list of zoning recommendations that are the culmination of two years of meticulous research with interactive participation and guidance from the public through workshops, presentations, and a combined meeting featuring members of various land use boards.
The IAC arrived at the vision and concept of the Mamaroneck MAKER Zone, representing Manufacturing, Artisanal Foods & Arts, Knowledge Economy, Environmental Buffers, and Recreation. The mission statement for the MAKER Zone is:
“A coordinated effort to preserve existing uses and incentivize the growth of the “maker” economy in Mamaroneck as an economic engine for jobs, tax revenue, environmentally-sensitive redevelopment, neighborhood and eco-friendly buffering, flood mitigation, and new recreational activities all aimed at the revitalization and sustainability of the manufacturing district in Mamaroneck.”

This project represents a significant development opportunity for the City. It also presents a unique opportunity to enhance critical pedestrian connections between the Transit District and adjacent neighborhoods including Battle Hill, Fisher Hill, and Ferris Avenue as well as reinforce the existing Main Street connection to the downtown core. All development concepts must be consistent with the six primary community-driven planning principles developed through significant public input during the Transit District Strategic Plan process including: Density, Economic Development, Open Space, Parking, Pedestrian/Bicycle, and “Placemaking.”
