The Pratt Institute Programs for Sustainable Planning and Development Spring Lecture Series in New York features local leaders and internationally known practitioners discussing current themes in planning, preservation and the environment. Topics range from social engagement in planning practices to New York City’s sustainability policies.
This week’s lecturer is Mike Marrella, Project Director for the Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, New York City Department of City Planning. His summary of the $3 billion Vision 2020 Comprehensive Waterfront Plan will document the ongoing transformation of New York City’s 520 miles of waterfront into a more vibrant open space and valuable resource. The 10-year plan calls for improvement to wastewater infrastructure, protection of water quality, expansion of greenways and construction of new parks, with the goal of revitalizing our waterways into the city’s “sixth borough.”
The lecture is free and open to the public. RSVP is required; email to [email protected].
