Delivers on Adams Administration’s “Get Stuff Built” Plan to Tackle City’s Affordable Housing Shortage, Reach “Moonshot” Goal of 500,000 New Homes in a Decade
NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) Director and City Planning Commission (CPC) Chair Dan Garodnick today unveiled the “Green Fast Track” — a streamlined environmental review process to accelerate the production of small- and medium-sized housing projects across New York City. A major initiative of the administration’s “Get Stuff Built” plan to create more housing by cutting red tape, streamlining processes, and removing bureaucratic obstacles, the Green Fast Track will help achieve the city’s housing and climate goals by making it easier for modest, climate-friendly housing projects to proceed through environmental review.
