Regional Sustainability Plan
The Central New York Regional Sustainability Plan (VisionCNY) was prepared by a regional consortium of communities and a planning team led by the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board (CNY RPDB) under the auspices of the NYS Cleaner, Greener Communities (CGC) Regional Sustainability Planning Program. This statewide initiative was established by Governor Cuomo in 2011 and was designed to help regions across the State develop plans that will serve as a foundation for investments that will provide the basis for a sustainable future.
The purpose of this process was to create a long-term vision for a region using the collaborative input of regional stakeholders and public participants. The planning process was designed to be representative of many voices throughout a region and focused on a long-term perspective. Based upon this approach, this process will provide State and local officials the perspective needed for long-term commitments and investments in economic, social, and environmental resilience.
VisionCNY provides a framework that can be used by communities in Central New York to chart a path toward a sustainable future.
