    New York Law School, New York NY

    Join us Tuesday, April 10, 2018, for Open Space Dialogues: From New Perspectives to Action, an evening of provocative presentations and discussion created by New Yorkers for Parks and WXY architecture + urban design. Following events focused on open space value, design, development, policy, and financing, we have a panel of leading parks practitioners, decision-makers, activists, and stakeholders. Our panelists will reflect on the interrelated themes of the series and turn their focus to open space and rezonings. By sharing recent work and expertise, or focusing on our case study, Southern Boulevard, they will answer questions regarding some of the most pressing issues facing our city’s open spaces:

    • How have neighborhood-scale rezonings treated open spaces?
    • What tools have stakeholders used to create and communicate open space priorities?
    • For future rezonings, what opportunities and challeges do city agencies and local stakeholders face in prioritizing parks and open spaces as critical infrastructure?
    • What research or tools can help bolster the role of parks and open spaces in these conversations?

    Adam Lubinsky of WXY architecture + urban design will moderate the evening’s discussions, with introductions by Lynn Kelly of New Yorkers for Parks

    Presenters

    Deborah Marton, Executive Director, New York Restoration Project

    All Day

    WHERE:
    VHB, New York

    Each Spring Nanette Bourne and Nancy Doon, of sponsor firms Sam Schwartz Engineering and VHB, respectively, and Board Members of Bridges to Community (BTC) lead a group of business leaders to work on a construction project in Nicaragua. Several people from other APA New York Metro Chapter sponsor firms including AKRF, LANGAN and WSP have joined them on previous trips. Projects are selected by the community and the group works side by side with the people who will benefit from the project.

    This coming trip is scheduled for Nicaragua from March 17 – March 24, 2018.  The project will be the construction of a simple and safe concrete block house for a family living in extremely substandard conditions. The foundation will be dug on day one, and the group will work with professional masons to complete the house by the end of the week. A “housewarming” celebration will be held with the family and the community at the end of the week.

    The house will be built in a rural village about 2 hours from the capital city of
    Managua. Volunteers fly into Managua and then travel with BTC staff to the village where dormitory style housing is provided to the group. There will be 15-20 volunteers working side by side with bilingual BTC staff and Nicaraguan masons. The work is for all ages and abilities. It does not require experience or an ability to speak Spanish. All meals will be provided.

    The cost is $1,395 for food and lodging and with airfare, the projected total is $1,900-$2,000. All costs are tax deductible.

    If you have any interest, please contact trip leaders Nancy Doon (212-
    857-7312) or Nanette Bourne  (914-393- 2465) or Bridges to Community directly at  (914-923- 2200).

    Nancy and Nanette will be holding an information session at VHB’s Office, One Penn Plaza on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, at 6 PM for anyone interested in learning about the trip from other previous business leader trips.

    Please respond to Nancy Doon if you would like to attend the information session.
