PlaNYC Albany Advocacy Day

As the first government-issued urban sustainability plan in the United States, PlaNYC is a blueprint to improve transportation, housing, open space, water and air quality and traffic congestion. Perhaps most of all, PlaNYC aims to reduce our energy consumption and limit our impact on climate change.

As momentum is building for PlaNYC and the State legislative session is nearing an end, we invite you to take action and get involved. Join the Campaign for New York’s Future as we take our message to Albany! Meet with your elected officials to let them know you support a greener, greater New York.
