Livable Neighborhoods Program: Resources

Guest reads program at Livable Neighborhoods Program Workshop


MAS is developing several online resources for individuals and organizations looking to learn more about land-use planning and advocacy in New York City. With this information, citizens can become more effective advocates for their communities. Resources include:

Resources Index

The NYC Land-Use Planning and Advocacy Resources Index is a comprehensive, user-friendly online index of organizations providing workshops and webinars, online/print resources and tools relevant to land-use planning and advocacy in New York City. A beta version of this should be launching in March.

Tools for Transparency

Additional resources include our Tools for Transparency such as the Accidental Skyline, 421-a Tax Exemption, and Public Assets: City-Owned and Leased Properties maps. These help community members understand where development can happen within their neighborhoods.
