Please join us for a related program for Mapping Community: Public Investment in NYC. How does New York City plan its capital projects and then turn those from a budget line into a completed public building? To accompany the Mapping Community: Public Investment in NYC Exhibit, several experts who fund, plan, design, and construct public buildings will share critical insights into the capital process. This panel reveals the economics behind how city agencies finance and construct public assets, including local schools, libraries, and affordable housing developments. The panel also explores how a city as large and complex as New York goes about managing its extensive portfolio of capital finances.
How do public buildings like schools, firehouses, and libraries end up in your community, and who had a say in how they got there?
Mapping Community demystifies the complex process of capital planning in New York City by explaining the rules that govern the capital process for our city, the various city agencies that implement projects, and the ways everyday New Yorkers have a say in what types of investment they would like to see in their neighborhoods.
The exhibition will also look at how public projects are accomplished at the local community level by illustrating five types of public infrastructure—housing, transit, parks, schools, and libraries—in five community boards.Buy tickets/get more info now
