March 27, 2019 - Max & Murphy Podcast: Should the City Develop a Comprehensive Plan? with Elena Conte, Pratt Center Director of Policy

elena conte 150Unlike several other major cities, New York does not do "comprehensive" planning, instead opting for a more piecemeal approach. With the 2019 Charter Revision Commission in full swing, one proposal on the table is the idea of adding a requirement that the city creates a comprehensive plan -- including things like climate resiliency, housing, schools, shelters, and more -- every ten years, with modifications along the way. One proponent of that proposal is the Pratt Center, and the director of policy there, Elena Conte, joined the show to discuss the push to have the charter commission craft a proposal to go before voters in November that would require a comprehensive city plan.
