New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Initiative Draws to a Close  


 

On May 30, 2014, the New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium approved its Implementation Plan for Regional Sustainable Development. The bi-state partnership brought together seventeen cities, counties, and regional organizations in Long Island, New York City, the Hudson Valley, and southern Connecticut to support local and regional planning that leverages the region’s robust transit network and promotes economic opportunity. The program completed eight place-specific projects, two corridor-level studies and four regional-scale programs.

Activities from the Consortium have already influenced policy in cities and have provided the impetus for more change in the future. Host SCI communities, in key locations along the Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road transit network, have advanced plans for jobs, mixed-income housing, improved transit connections and quality of life improvements. Consortium work played a role in developing recent policy initiatives such as the Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR), the New York City housing plan, and the federal Rebuild by Design effort.
 
The Consortium’s outreach activities included two rounds of regional workshops as well as sessions focused on the Consortium’s local projects. The Consortium also convened an advisory committee as part of the Fair Housing and Equity Analysis that forms a part of the Consortium Implementation Plan. The advisory committee included representatives from fair housing and community development non-profit organizations, housing developers, community foundations, planning organizations and housing coalitions from New York and Connecticut in an unprecedented effort to shape a regional discussion on fair and affordable housing. The process resulted in a broad range of recommendations contained in the Regional Implementation Plan for Sustainable Development.

The New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Consortium would like to thank members of the public who engaged in the regional effort. HUD and the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities also deserves much credit for conceiving and implementing a national initiative that is creating change in communities across America.

Pre-Test for NYMTC Regional Establishment Survey Completed

Website image


NYMTC is begun the process of collecting travel information from businesses in 28 counties in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in order to help plan the region’s transportation future. The Regional Establishment Survey (RES) will help the region’s transportation planners learn more about how customers, employees and commercial deliveries get around the 28 county tri-state area to all types of businesses. The information obtained from this study will be used to develop regional plans and make recommendations on the use of federal transportation funds.

In anticipation of the main survey launch in fall 2014, a small pilot pre-test was used to determine how well the survey questionnaire and outreach methodology works.  The pre-test phase of the RES was completed at the end of June, with 30 businesses of varying size and location targeted. Thus far, questionnaires have been received back from 16 businesses, with more coming in via mail.

The next important milestone of this project is the Main Survey, or actual data collection, which will conducted during September and October of 2014. Survey data from the RES will contribute to a better understanding of regional travel behavior and be used in NYMTC’s transportation modeling efforts. Ultimately, this project will help in the development of federally-required long-range Regional Transportation Plans that seek to forecast and address the region’s future transportation needs, benefiting establishments, customers, visitors and employees throughout the region.

Recent Speakers and Presentations Focus on MTA Data and Information

As part of its ongoing speaker series, NYMTC recently hosted two presenters who each spoke about different data and trend-related aspects of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Whither the Dashing Commuter?....Transport Trends and Challenges in a Changing Region

Wheeler

 

At the April 18th PFAC meeting, William Wheeler, Director of Special Project Development and Planning for the MTA, gave a presentation entitled “Whither the Dashing Commuter?....Transport Trends and Challenges in a Changing Region,” which included an overview of the MTA’s current analysis and possible strategies to meet anticipated regional needs. As part of its development of a “Twenty-year Needs” capital investment strategy, MTA reviews the socioeconomic and ridership changes in the region, both in the recent past and projected future. Some changes are dramatic – such as NYC Transit reaching ridership levels not seen since 1950, and unprecedented growth in New York City’s population – while some changes are subtle as recessions and the maturation of the Baby Boom generation affect employment and ridership patterns.
