Panel: NYC2030 Transportation Issues

9:10 PM EDT on June 4, 2007

On Earth Day, April 22, the Mayor gave one of the most important speeches of his administration, laying out a coordinated challenge to deal with the preservation and growth issues facing New York over the next 25 years. You've heard about the proposals regarding congestion pricing, but not as much about the other 126 important initiatives regarding housing, open space, transportation, energy, water, air quality and climate change.

This event is the third in a cycle of three detailed presentation/workshops, following successful sessions on growth and green issues. Audience interaction will expand on this discussion.

The focus of this session is on Transportation Issues (congestion pricing, transit improvements, transit oriented development, alternative transportation, infrastructure maintenance), and what we as design professionals can do to help refine and implement objectives and strategies.
