Imagine Flatbush 2030
With the support of the Rockefeller Foundation and in partnership with the Flatbush Development Corporation, MAS created a demonstration project: Imagine Flatbush 2030 to bridge the gap between PlaNYC’s sustainability goals and consensus-driven community-based planning. Over the past year, the MAS Planning Center has worked with residents, business owners, youth, community leaders, social service providers, and clergy in Flatbush, Brooklyn to assist them in creating a neighborhood sustainability and livability agenda, and tools to measure progress toward consensus-based goals.
