Yamilée Duroseau has experience in local governments, politics, and community organizing.
Yamilée has gained understanding of housing, economic development and community affairs through field work at the Pratt Institute and her position at the Town of Hempstead. At the Town of Hempstead, her responsibilities included creating zoning, building and land use databases for specific districts within the Town of Hempstead in order to quantify and keep track of the number of illegal residences, building code violations, real estate development projects and businesses within said districts. Yamilée is also a part of the Elmont West Committee where she volunteers her time to organize community events.
Yamilée received a Master’s of City and Regional Planning from the Pratt Institute. There, Yamilée researched, surveyed and mapped land use patterns, zoning codes, commercial and residential areas within Northern Brooklyn in order to present best practices and recommendations to protect North Brooklyn’s industrial land use, design visibility and functionality, transform their Industrial Business Zone into an eco-industrial district and increase the neighborhood’s capacity for business growth to North Brooklyn’s business exchange, Evergreen.
