The Mayor’s PlaNYC2030 is a citywide sustainability agenda that lays the groundwork for achieving and maintaining affordable housing, open space, good transportation, clean air, water, and land and reliable energy. It affords an enormous opportunity to rethink the development of the city.
However, the plan requires greater attention at the neighborhood level in order to achieve the goals it has laid out. In order to achieve this, the Municipal Art Society Planning Center has created Imagine Flatbush 2030, an initiative aimed at creating neighborhood sustainability goals and tools to measure progress toward community-decided consensus-based goals.

Imagine Flatbush 2030 is part of the Jane Jacobs and the Future of New York project. To learn more about the project and find out how you can get involved, visit www.mas.org.
