The deBlasio administration recently released the One New York plan as the blueprint to ensure NYC grows a strong and just city.
Some of their measurable goals include:
- Making New York City home to 4.9 million jobs by 2040.
- Creating 240,000 new housing units by 2025
- Enabling the average New Yorker to reach 25% more jobs – or 1.8 million jobs
- Lifting 800,000 New Yorkers out of poverty or near-poverty by 2025.
- Reducing the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050, over 2005 levels.
- Sending zero waste to landfills and reducing waste disposal by 90 percent relative to 2005 levels, by 2030.
- Ensuring New York City has the best air quality among all large U.S. cities by 2030.
- Reducing risks of flooding in most affected communities.
The plan calls on the City’s partners to work together on shared goals for building a strong region, and the it requires months of engagement with thousands of New Yorkers across the five boroughs – including through an online survey available in seven language and dozens of community meetings.
In the coming months, the de Blasio administration will continue the conversation with residents, civic leaders, and elected officials to refine initiatives and encourage civic engagement.
