Happy new year! On January 1, 2022, Eric Adams took office as the 110th Mayor of the City of New York.
The NYCEDC is looking forward to his leadership as we invest in our communities, grow our programs, and enhance our infrastructure for the long term.
With the start of a new year, we’re continuing to strive for an equitable economic recovery.
To safeguard growth and development in New York City, the NYCEDC is thinking critically about how to withstand threats brought on by climate change and reduce our reliance on greenhouse gases.
In partnership with the Department of Transportation and the Office of the Mayor, the NYCEDC released Delivering Green: A vision for a sustainable freight network serving New York City to reimagine how to get New Yorkers the goods they need while keeping pollution and congestion away from their homes.
The NYCEDC also partnered with the Mayor’s Office of Climate Resiliency and released the Financial District and Seaport Climate Resilience Master Plan.
This plan offers a blueprint for comprehensive flood-defense infrastructure by reimaging the shoreline of Lower Manhattan with a resilient waterfront to withstand threats brought on by climate change.
While the NYCEDC continues to face unprecedented challenges, we’re looking forward to 2022 and the work ahead.
Thank you for your continued partnership—wishing you a happy and healthy start to the year!
