PlaNYC 2030: Progress and Lessons Learned


April 21, 2009


6-8 pm


NYU Stern School of Business Henry Kaufman Management Center, 44 West 4th Street (at Greene Street) - Gardner Commons on the 1st Floor

Launched on Earth Day, 2007 Mayor Bloomberg's PlaNYC 2030 promised to address the major environmental sustainability issues facing the city, with 127 initiatives on housing, open space, water, air quality, transportation, brownfields, and the city's impact on climate change. In its first year, PlaNYC launched 118 of these initiatives, and in 2008 issued a report on progress. Some programs have had great success (transitioning the city's taxi fleet to hybrid vehicles), and others have come up against challenges (congestion pricing). Part of Mayor Bloomberg's promise was to hold PlaNYC accountable for results. Two years into PlaNYC 2030, this panel will discuss the status of some of these initiatives, accomplishments, and lessons learned.
