Imagine Flatbush 2030 provides a model with the hope that every neighborhood in New York City will rise to the challenge of sustaining our city into the future. MAS challenges the city’s administration to think big and not just about sustainability, but about the participatory process as well. The city’s sustainability goals should be translated into realistic growth targets, city planners should work with residents to add sustainability indicators in neighborhoods that have already created their own plans, and the city should provide sufficient resources to enable other neighborhoods to partner with the city and develop their own neighborhood sustainability plans. Once this has been achieved, only then should the city proceed with implementing PlaNYC2030.
