Checking in on PlaNYC 2030

Two years into Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC 2030 initiative, the Sustainability Practice Network is hosting a panel at NYU the evening of April 21st to discuss the status of PlaNYC initiatives and review lessons learned.

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 (such as transitioning the city’s taxi fleet to hybrid vehicles) have had great success, and others (such as congestion pricing) have come up against challenges. Part of Mayor Bloomberg’s promise was to hold PlaNYC accountable for results.

  1. Inspect away Congestion! The city should toughen inspections for medical, psychiatric and vehicle reasons to cut down the number of congestion. This way, we will also get the voters against congestion pricing, who live in Bayside and Staten Island, to move away. Free health care means psychiatric care for all those angry talk radio white males!
