New York City’s Department of City Planning is seeking a Senior Project Manager for resiliency initiatives within their Environment Assessment and Review Division. The Environmental Assessment and Review Division is responsible for preparing and reviewing City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR) applications for the City Planning Commission. The division also coordinates the review of CEQR applications between DCP and other government agencies and conducts intra‐agency CEQR reviews, including the review and preparation of draft and final Environmental Impact Statements. In addition, the division prepares final CEQR determinations, letters and memos; and provides technical assistance in the preparation and submission of applications.
The Department of City Planning, in collaboration with other agencies, has undertaken a number of initiatives to build the city’s resilience. These studies are focused on identifying and implementing land use and zoning changes as well as other actions needed to support the short-term recovery and long‐term vitality of communities affected by Hurricane Sandy and other areas at risk of coastal flooding. As part of the Department’s recovery activities following Hurricane Sandy, and funded through federal Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG‐DR) funding, the Department is conducting citywide and area‐specific studies to increase the city’s resilience to flood and facilitate the recovery efforts. These studies are expected to result in a DCP‐sponsored citywide text amendment (the Citywide Climate Resiliency Zoning Text Amendment) and possibly in other Uniform Land Use Review Procedures (ULURP) actions. The Environmental Assessment and Review Division is leading the preparation of all environmental review documents for these ULURP actions.
Under the direct supervision and general guidance of the Director and Deputy Director, with latitude for independent judgment, the Senior Project Manager will manage the process to prepare environmental review materials for the Department of City Planning’s resiliency initiatives. This grant funded position is expected to last two years.
