Urbanomics

Urbanomics prepared the market scan for potential redevelopment and socioeconomic impacts metrics by type to inform the form-based zoning code for the area surrounding the potential reopening of the Republic Airport LIRR station in East Farmingdale, NY. Market demand for housing and commercial development was balanced with sometimes opposing community desires, infrastructure limitations, as well as environmental constraints due to both flooding and munitions brownfields.
The second phase of work included the development of a cost benefit matrix to enable the visualization of the impacts of development options on schools, other municipal services, jobs, traffic, and the environment.
