The city of New York is seeking public feedback on the Vision 2030 update of the New York City Comprehensive Plan, the first update since the Vision 2020 earned Daniel Burnham Award for a Comprehensive Plan from the American Planning Association in 2012.
The New York City Department of City Planning is mandated by a 2008 law to update the Comprehensive Waterfront Plan every ten years. The Vision 2030 update promises to make New York City’s 520 miles of waterfront more accessible, active, and resilient by building on the work of the Vision 2020 plan to provide public access the city's waterways, adapt the city's densely populated coastal areas to the effects of climate change, and support economic activity along the waterfront, among other goals.
The city is also hosting #WaterfrontWednesday virtual events to continue the public engagement process during the pandemic.
The Vision 2030 New York City Comprehensive Waterfront Plan is expected for completion by the end of 2020.
