Website: PlaNYC 2030


PlaNYC was created in 2007 as a result of a projected increase of one million new residents in the city. The plan was implemented to help Mayor Bloomberg help strengthen the economy, combat climate change, and enhance the quality of life for all those living in New York City. Twenty-five city agencies come together in the PlaNYC to work towards a greener New York, in the long term and short term.

"In just four years we’ve built hundreds of acres of new parkland while improving our existing parks. We’ve created or preserved more than 64,000 units of housing. We’ve built whole new neighborhoods with access to transit. We’ve provided New Yorkers with more transportation options. We’ve enacted the most ambitious laws of any city in the country to make existing buildings more energy-efficient. And we’ve reduced our greenhouse gas emissions 13% below 2005 levels. Over 97% of the 127 initiatives in PlaNYC were launched within one-year of its release and almost two-thirds of its 2009 milestones were achieved or mostly achieved."
