in Politics and Plans, System Change

Planning Boards = Index

In each part, some observations seek to improve the relationship between the powerful and influential money makers and about seven and a half million ordinary working-class people, small business owners, retired people, first responders, and so on.

Part I GOS-3P-RE™

This is an open set of planning questions about the LTCP as if it was a law.  It seems unlikely, except for one thing.  Some members of the Council are just as mad at DCP as you are. 

Part II Rolling the Dice

Carl Weisbrod’s presentation is first, speaking as Chair of the thirteen-member City Planning Commissioner in 2016. The second is by Marisa Lago speaking as Director of the Department of City Planning. It looks as if it is an honest power grab by term-limited council members, and they are rolling the dice on the next Mayor of NY.

Part III Inclusionary Energy

Seeing the Climate Mobilization Act (CMA) as a compounding displacement factor of the LTCP. A long-term comprehensive plan will be looking at a pile of houses on stilts thanks to the compromises in City Planning Commission Approves Citywide Coastal Zoning Rules.

Part IV Megadevelopment

Imagines the law as a bait and switch 5-year confidence game.

Part V Flushing – A Wicked Problem

Looking for197a  alternative process that invests in the community district power

Part VI Doublespeak+

Ranked-choice and pocketbooks

Part VII Summary of 2.23.21 Hearing

I don’t really know. I’m thinking of something but not sure what yet, but I am moving toward the first shot at a City Council strategy that alters the Council.

Part VIII Getting Strategic

The only way to be sure is to go strategic—first, the discovery of weak appointments. After that, motivation will be second and money third.
