In 2010 New York State passed the Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy Act to ensure that state infrastructure funding is consistent with smart growth principles. This Act requires investment priority be given to existing infrastructure facilities which are consistent with local governments' plans for development. These principles are consistent with goals for climate change mitigation and adaptation and smart growth actions. This panel for the New York Academy of Sciences will explore the implications of legislation for smart growth, and discuss how multiple layers of government coordinate investment and growth decisions to efficiently use existing transportation facilities. These issues are critical for meeting the challenges of carbon reduction and climate change adaptation.
Networking reception to follow.
