Development Projects

Brooklyn Heights is continuously updating its infrastructure to ensure efficient traffic flow for businesses and residents, frequently providing proactive and environmentally-friendly solutions. Our streets are kept clean and are re-striped with lane lines several times a year. We treat ice and plow snow in a preemptive rather than reactive mode and do the same with street resurfacing and replacement when needed. Our goal is to ensure that employees of local businesses enjoy a commute to and from work on safe clean roads and without hassle.

Recent major development projects within the Village include:

Press Release June 5, 2017:
State Rep. Nick Celebrezze and Mayor Michael Procuk announced Friday that the village's Valley Business Park has been granted the AT&T Fiber Ready designation. It can be used to emphasize that fiber-based data connections are available at the business park, making the area more attractive for growth and job creation. "When a business is considering a new location, company leadership often considers more than roads, water, sewer, gas and electricity," said Mayor Procuk. "Many of them want to know if there is fiber available at the site. So this AT&T Fiber Ready designation gives us a valuable new tool in our toolbox."
