Urban Design Forum

The Urban Design Forum convenes civic leaders to confront the defining issues in New York City’s built environment. The 2021 election is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to define a new plan for our city by:

  • Shaping equitable and fair growth citywide
  • Leading in design excellence across the public realm and public buildings
  • Ensuring ongoing community engagement through real civic infrastructure
  • Developing community planning tools to welcome good growth
  • Instituting a right to housing that secures permanent homes for every New Yorker
  • Safeguarding the city with a comprehensive climate strategy
  • Establishing working neighborhoods and access to good jobs in every borough
