Concrete Thinking

On December 16, 2021, New York City’s Municipal Art Societ (MAS) published Towards Comprehensive Planning: Moving Beyond Our Comfort Zone to reinforce City Council Speaker Corey Johnson’s “Planning Together” legislation. MAS Director Elizabeth Goldstein stated the report supports a “community-based, comprehensive planning framework.” Goldstein’s report makes three concrete recommendations; 1) a new City Chater Revision Commission, 2) Increased Funding for Community Boards/Boro President offices, and 3) implementation of Intro 1620-A.

Note that three other recommendations were made, but within the context of the press release, they cannot be assigned a person’s name, a place, date or number. Words the wind really, just words in the wind.
