  • Empowering Cities with Data: Partnership Building & Frontier Technologies

    WHEN: Monday, March 9, 2020 12:00 am

    How can cities reduce cyclist and pedestrian traffic fatalities? How can streets be better designed for the elderly? How can housing authorities avoid trash overflow onto sidewalks?

    How can planning professionals work with this data and budding technology firms?

    Urbanites long for cities that are more walkable, bikeable, and responsive. This event will explore two key tools for realizing these goals: partnership building, and frontier technology. Specifically, a look into Numina’s sensing platform that measures street activity.

    Regina Myer, president of Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, will share on partnerships for the public realm and the Living Labs program.

    After the panel discussion, there will be an opportunity for attendees to explore Numina’s data dashboards; including data on public streets, parks and plazas, and trash collection.

    This event is hosted by the APA New York Metro Chapter Technology Committee and is eligible for 1 CM credit; however, you do not need to be a Chapter member or urban planner to attend, open to the public.

  • SUSTAINABILITY AMONG THE SILOS - A Special Initiative of the APA New York Metro Chapter

    WHEN: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 12:00 am

     APA-NYM Workshop, “Sustainability Among the Silos”

    When: Wednesday, November 20, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
    Where: WSP, One Penn Plaza, 4th Floor, Midtown Manhattan

    Pre-Registration Required by 11/18: RSVP HERE
    2 CM Credits.

    Please join us for an exciting workshop, “Sustainability Among the Silos: A Professional Dialogue on Changes to Planning Practice to Meet the Challenges of Future Sustainability.”

    The pursuit of a sustainable future and climate mitigation and adaptation—in areas such as housing, land use, economic development, transportation, public health, resiliency, and environmental protection—is a critical imperative for our communities, our regions, our country, and the entire world. It is a pursuit that challenges the planning profession to adapt its practices in order to holistically incorporate the demands of sustainability across the many policy, legislative, and jurisdictional silos in which planners do their work.

    In recognition of the challenge inherent in planning for sustainability, the APA New York Metro Chapter is beginning an initiative to explore the feasibility of change within the profession and the way that change might be accomplished. Through Sustainability Among the Silos, the Chapter seeks to marshal the experiences and insights of its members to optimize the profession’s role in the pursuit of sustainability by harnessing the energy and creativity of our communities and our technologies to craft wide-ranging solutions to the crucial problems that we all currently face. A Chapter workshop is the first step in this initiative.

    Pre-Registration is required. RSVP for the workshop by 11/18 HERE
