What is the Newburgh BOA?

The City of Newburgh will complete a BOA Nomination Study for approximately 144 acres located in the Hillside neighborhood near the Hudson River. Potential Brownfield and underutilized sites will be evaluated for contamination clean-up and redevelopment. Neighborhood stabilization and marketing of strategic areas are expected outcomes of the BOA Nomination, which will encourage investment and revitalization of the downtown business district. Anticipated community benefits resulting from this project include the creation of jobs, private and public sector reinvestment, increased tax revenue and increased property values.

A Steering Committee comprised of local stakeholders and government officials will oversee all aspects of the Newburgh BOA Nomination. The committee will be supported by project partners from the City of Newburgh, a consultant team, and New York State Department of State. The project includes a Community Participation Plan to keep stakeholders and the general public informed and engaged throughout the process. The project was launched in January of 2023 and will run through April 2024.
