Please join us at 6pm on Monday night at the Municipal Art Society’s Urban Center (457 Madison Avenue) for the second in a series of forums presented by MAS and the Campaign for Community-Based Planning, titled “Creating the City We All Want: A Roadmap”:

Monday, April 14: PlaNYC 2030 Post-Bloomberg: Using Community Plans to Achieve a Sustainable City (No Matter Who’s in Office)”
Mayor Bloomberg will leave office 20 years before his sustainability plan is fully realized. But there’s hope—many neighborhoods were planning for sustainability long before the Mayor even took office. Neighborhood plans typically recommend precisely those initiatives the Mayor supports: adding and improving parks and open space; securing affordable housing; improving neighborhood mobility; addressing inadequate infrastructure, etc. Implementing these plans will secure a sustainable future for all New Yorkers and will shore up community support for citywide sustainability goals. Neighborhood advocates and planners discuss their experiences working within a sustainability framework, both from within PlaNYC 2030 and outside of it.

Panelists: Tom Angotti, Hunter College Center for Community Planning and Development and editor of Gotham Gazette’s Sustainability Watch; Miquela Craytor, Deputy Director, Sustainable South Bronx; Jeanne DuPont, Executive Director, Rockaway Waterfront Alliance; Yolanda Gonzalez, Nos Quedamos/We Stay; and Paul Steely White, Executive Director, Transportation Alternatives.

Moderator: Amy Zimmer, Metro New York
