FSMA TRAINING

  Under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), as of SEPTEMBER 2017 applicable businesses that process, pack, hold or manufacture human food will be required to have food safety plans outlined and supervised by qualified staff.  


 Specifically, the final rule “Preventive Controls for Human Food” of FSMA requires that food safety plans must be developed and overseen by a “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual” (PCQI). 


 Coming soon this Fall 2017, Hunts Point EDC will partner with the nonprofit industrial consulting organization ITAC in a FDA-recognized 2.5-day workshop aimed at the City-wide food industry. This workshop will comply with the federal qualification requirements for a PCQI. 


 In the Spring of 2017, we hope to bring the FSMA training program directly to the South Bronx for our Hunts Point & Port Morris businesses.

SHERIDAN/BRUCKNER ENHANCEMENT

In March 2017 Governor Cuomo announced a $1.8 Billion NYS Dept of Transportation initiative

  · Create a new family-friendly Sheridan Boulevard by changing the Expressway from an interstate into a landscaped boulevard and install three signal crossings to provide residents with direct, safe access to the Bronx waterfront and Starlight Park. A new pedestrian bridge over the Bronx River will connect the two sides of the Park to enhance walking, bicycling and recreation.  

This project aims to transform South Bronx circulation though a 2-part project that will:

  · Eliminate the bottleneck at the Bruckner-Sheridan Interchange and improve vehicle access to Hunts Point by adding a third lane to the Bruckner Expressway and relocating the Sheridan ramps. The proposed project has two alternative solutions -  a new elevated connection between Sheridan/Bruckner and Edgewater Road on the eastern edge of the Point or a new elevated connection between the Bruckner and Oak Point Avenue on the western edge of the Point.
