What's Your Big Idea for NYC's Future?


Every four years, New York City updates PlaNYC to make sure that they are building toward a future that's resilient, sustainable, and makes sense for the lives of all New Yorkers.

This year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is making equity a lynchpin of PlaNYC -- and they have made the process more inclusive than ever before. Every New Yorker has a voice in this plan and can participate in building our city's future.

Please take a moment to take the survey.

Your idea could be about anything: from the environment to jobs to education to affordable housing to transportation. HINT: If keeping libraries open more hours is a priority for you, this is a great place to speak up.
