The Spofford Juvenile Detention Center, a juvenile delinquency center closed permanently by the Administration for Children’s Services last March because of unfit conditions, is slated to be redeveloped for another use with input from the Hunts Point community, the New York Daily News reported.

Starting this summer, the Bloomberg administration will be reaching out to local residents as part of a 12-month process to determine the right use for the site. Ideas for housing, healthcare and a sustainable food market are already floating around, the Daily News said.

“We are starting a thorough process to determine the appropriate reuse of the site, which will include engaging the community, stakeholders, elected officials and others to help us create and refine a redevelopment plan,” said Eric Bederman, a spokesperson for the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

The 12-month outreach process will culminate in an official public request for proposals. [NYDN]
