Village of Patchogue Revitalization, Economic Impact Analysis
The redevelopment of the Village of Patchogue has been one of Long Island’s foremost community improvement success stories. The revitalization of Patchogue has helped make it an attractive place to invest in new projects and redevelopment, an appealing place to live, and a popular destination for visitors. Patchogue’s revival has been recognized as a model for transit-oriented development and a success story for Smart Growth on Long Island. The Long Island Regional Planning Council has designated Downtown Patchogue as a Project of Regional Significance and it has also been similarly recognized by Suffolk County, the Long Island Index, the Long Island Housing Partnership, Sustainable Long Island, the Regional Planning Association, and Vision Long Island. As a method to not only quantify Patchogue’s success, but also identify the key factors that made it possible, the LIRPC commissioned a study to measure and analyze the economic impacts associated with the village’s redevelopment to better quantify the wide-reaching impacts.
