The MAS Survey on Livability
August 23rd, 2010, 11:20 am
MAS President Vin Cipolla will release the results of the MAS Survey on Livability. The Municipal Art Society commissioned the Marist Institute for Public Opinion to conduct the survey of 1,000 New Yorkers to determine what they feel makes New York City livable. The survey is supported by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. Panelists will react to the results of the survey and discuss how the concerns of New York City residents can be addressed and how livability can be improved. Gary Zarr, principal at Phil & Company, will introduce this panel and Time Out North America president Alison Tocci will moderate the discussion. Panelists include Paul Steely White, executive director of Transportation Alternatives, Robert McNulty, CEO of Partners for Livable Communities, and MAS Urban Fellow Mary Rowe.
