Capital Region Sustainability Plan

Final Plan Available for Review

A coalition of Capital Region municipalities and organizations has received funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to create a regional sustainability plan as part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Cleaner, Greener Communities Program. This Program will guide and support integrated, sustainable solutions to improve quality of life through two phases. Key goals of the Program are: 

  • Establish sustainability & land use policies 
  • Guide infrastructure investment 
  • Promote sustainable growth 
  • Reduce GHG Emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050

Through this Program NYSERDA will provide funding to help New York’s 10 Regions establish sustainability plans and adopt smart development practices.
