Started in 2007, PlaNYC was an effort spearheaded by Mayor Michael Bloomberg to strengthen the economy, enhance the quality of life for all New Yorkers, and combat climate change. This ambitious initiative brought together 25 different city agencies, and the fruits of their labors can be seen on this website. The sections of the site include The Plan, Outreach, News and Events, and Publications. In The Plan area, visitors can make their way through two dozen topical areas, which include energy, air quality, solid waste, food, and natural systems. Each of these areas includes a brief overview, along with links to more detailed technical reports and white papers. In the Outreach area, visitors can learn more about specific initiatives, such as GreeNYC, which is designed to help New Yorkers learn how to lead more sustainable lifestyles. The site is rounded out by the Publications area, which includes timely updates on the long-term progress of PlaNYC's work.
