Nassau County has confirmed workshop dates for the three selected station areas that will received a full pilot study. 


Capture4.JPGParticipate in one of eight public workshops to discuss findings and recommend actions for two projects underway by the New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium in New York City, Long Island, the Hudson Valley and Southern Connecticut:


  • A Planning Enhancement study of approaches to make communities throughout the New York/ Connecticut region more sustainable through enhancements to regional transportation, housing, economic development and environmental planning.
  • A Fair Housing and Equity Assessment to analyze evidence and develop regional strategies to further fair housing and expand equity and opportunity. 

The workshop will include presentations of how neighborhood conditions are affected by federal, state and regional decision-making in housing, transportation and development, and engage participants in discussions of how planning and programs can be improved to build more sustainable and equitable communities.

The New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium is a bi-state collaboration of cities, counties and regional planning organizations. This initiative, funded with a $3.5 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant, will integrate housing, economic development, transportation and environmental planning. The Regional Planning Enhancement study and Fair Housing and Equity Assessment are integral components of the initiative that includes place-based planning for sustainable development at key nodes in the regions transit network. Click to download a PDF of this public notice in English or EspaƱol.
