Tonight at 6pm at the Urban Center, 457 Madison Ave., the Municipal Art Society and the Campaign for Community-Based Planning present:
“Elected Officials Respond to Communities That Plan for Themselves”
This forum serves as the official launch of the new Atlas of Community-Based Plans, which illustrates that New Yorkers are increasingly pro-active planners – there has been a 40% increase in the number of community-based plans in New York City since 2004. Still, the Atlas also uncovers a disconnection between public consensus and allocation of public funds. How do our elected leaders plan to get the city on track toward a real planning and development partnership between government and communities?
Panelists: Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer; City Council Member Tony Avella (invited); and City Council Member Gale Brewer
Moderator: Ron Shiffman, Director Emeritus, Pratt Center for Community Development
