Event Description: How will we pay to maintain, improve and fulfill future requirements of New York City's vast infrastructure networks?
Presented by The Association of the Bar of the City of New York
The Mayor's PLANYC 2030 presents an ambitious agenda of major infrastructure improvements for New York City through the year 2030. Some of these will rely on existing financing techniques and sources while others will require new approaches. For example, in the transportation area PLANYC 2030 projects a funding gap of approximately $31 billion for all the projects outlined in the plan. At the forum a panel of highly distinguished experts will discuss financing New York City's infrastructure requirements. They will discuss some of the recent developments, such as the Hudson Yards Infrastructure Corporation financing, and proposals for the future such as the Sustainable Mobility and Regional Financing Authority, and look at some of the lessons from the past.
