1) the general location, character and extent of streets, viaducts, subways, bridges, waterways, floodplains, waterfronts, boulevards, parkways, playgrounds and open spaces;
2) the general location of public buildings and other public property;
3) the general location and extent of public utilities and terminals, (whether publicly or privately owned or operated) for water, light, sanitation, transportation, communication, power, and other purposes;
4) the removal, relocation, widening, narrowing, vacation, abandonment, change of use or extension of any of such ways, grounds, open spaces, buildings, property, utilities or terminals;
5) the general location character, layout and extent of community centers and neighborhood units;
6) the general character, extent and layout of the replanning and redevelopment of blighted districts and slum areas; and
