  • APA NYM Chapter Economic Development Committee Round-table Event :COVID-19 Impacts for the Retail/Restaurant Industries

    WHEN: Tuesday, June 30, 2020 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Title: New York City Roundtable: COVID-19 Impacts for the Retail/Restaurant Industries 

    Event Description: While many professions offer the luxury of remote working, other sectors of the economy that foster vibrant day-to-day life of cities and towns, notably retail and dining, have been shut down or significantly reduced operations to slow the spread of the virus. For New York City, recent data show estimated tax revenue losses of up to $10 billion, with the state-run MTA noting a shortfall of at least $4 billion. This roundtable, organized by the New York Metro Chapter of the American Planning Association Economic Development Committee, brings together a range of experts to provide insight on the economic toll the virus has inflicted on the City and what lies ahead in the struggle for recovery.

  • Economic Development Committee & Waterfront Committee's Panel Discussion Event: Impacts of New York City's Secondary Waterways

    WHEN: Tuesday, February 25, 2020 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    APA NY-Metro Chapter Presents;  Panel Discussion Event: Impacts of New York City’s Secondary Waterways 

    Join Economic Development Committee & Waterfront Committee for an exciting panel discussion on February 25th, 2020 (Tuesday)

    In the early 1800’s, many of NYC’s secondary waterways were once tidal estuaries and creeks that were later excavated or filled for commercial use. They became home to NYC’s industrial base. The maritime infrastructure created in the 18~1900s continues to support NYC’s overall economy. NYCEDC initiated a study in Oct 2015 to better understand the value of NYC’s secondary waterways and identify opportunities to grow waterborne commerce. Water freight provides significant public benefits by limiting truck use improving air quality, lowering our carbon footprint, reducing roadway congestion, and providing good-paying middle-class jobs.
