PlaNYC is a groundbreaking effort to address New York City’s long-term challenges including the forecast of 9.1 million residents by 2030, changing climate conditions, an evolving economy, and aging infrastructure. Over 25 City agencies and many outside partners in academic, business, civic, and community roles convened to outline specific goals (like 30 percent carbon reduction by 2030), initiatives, and milestones that address these challenges and ensure quality of life for New Yorkers in the years to come. The Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability (OLTPS) oversees the development of PlaNYC and now shares responsibility with the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency (ORR) for ensuring its implementation. These offices will develop plan updates every four years and provide annual progress reports. This ensures perspective and accountability that extends beyond any one mayoral administration and allows for new ideas and circumstances to shape the plan.
