PlanNYC: A New Planning And Development Website From The Furman Center

Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy


The Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy at New York University recently launched PlanNYC, an online planning portal dedicated to providing information about ongoing urban planning and development issues in New York City.

PlanNYC, located at www.plannyc.org, is a web-based tool to give citizens and organizations interested in housing and development in New York City easy access to facts, news, and events related to major urban planning projects and development proposals. Unlike traditional media websites, PlanNYC is organized by both project and neighborhood. Unlike the websites of many government agencies and advocacy organizations, PlanNYC takes care to feature perspectives on all sides of each issue.

PlanNYC is a complete urban planning web portal, with news summaries and links to development-related articles, official documents such as environmental impact statements, and a calendar of upcoming planning events that includes local community board meetings as well as citywide panels and hearings. PlanNYC brings together information from advocacy organizations, government agencies, academic institutions, neighborhood groups, and media organizations-all in one location.

PlanNYC was developed by Jordan Anderson as part of his Master of Urban Planning capstone project at New York University's Wagner School of Public Service.
