The Politics of Urban Sustainability Planning
Chapter two examines the politics of PlaNYC agenda-setting, revealing the key actors involved in creating the plan, including the mayor, city agencies, and local civil society groups. In particular, it focuses on less-visible aspects of municipal decision-making, including issue framing that occurred prior to public release of the plan. It shows how the plan contributes to a green growth agenda, but lacked strong public involvement in its creation. It explains the goals and initiatives related to urban forestry that were included in PlaNYC as well as why goals related to gardening and farming were “left on the cutting room floor.”
