Lower Manhattan “Community Conversation” on PlaNYC
The City is required by law (Local Law 17 of 2008) to update PlaNYC every four years. The first update is due on Earth Day 2011. The Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability, which is charged with implementing PlaNYC, will lead the effort to update the plan.
As part of this effort, the City will be creating several ways for New Yorkers to take part in a citywide conversation on PlaNYC and how we can create a greener, greater New York. This will include “Community Conversations” in every borough, issue-based roundtables, and online tools to enable all New Yorkers to make their views known.
