Does New York's PlaNYC 2030 Need Community Participation?
Earth Day, April 22, will mark the 3rd anniversary of Mayor Bloomberg's sustainability plan, PlaNYC 2030.
In this article, Tom Angotti, author of "New York For Sale: Community Planning Confronts Global Real Estate," questions whether the plan can make a real impact in improving sustainability if it remains a top-down effort controlled by the Mayor's office.
Angotti contends that it's time to involve New Yorkers at the local level in the process, perhaps through New York's community board system.
