Gordon Among Panel Contributing to Major Report on NYC’s Future
BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon was among a diverse panel of distinguished civic leaders and industry experts who contributed to a major report with a set of 40 proposals intended to make New York City the best place to work and serve as a roadmap for the city’s future. Called “‘New’ New York: Making New York Work for Everyone,” the report was released this week by New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Governor Kathy Hochul.
“The recommendations of the panel are not only the actions needed in New York City, but also reflect the larger region, including the Mid-Hudson Valley, which is an integral part of the economic system,” said Dr. Marsha Gordon, president and CEO, Business Council of Westchester. “Working together, with these goals as a guide, we can achieve a new vision for the future of New York.”
Mayor Adams said, “Our administration is committed to building a ‘New’ New York — a safer, fairer, and more prosperous city that will continue to adapt and thrive throughout the 21st century. And this plan lays out a clear vision for coordinated city, state, nonprofit, and private sector action to reenergize the areas still struggling from the pandemic and supercharge those with new momentum.
“Thanks to an extraordinary partnership with Mayor Adams and the New New York Panel, this report is providing the road map toward a stronger, fairer, and more accessible New York,” Governor Hochul said. “We are no longer living in the same New York as we were at the beginning of the pandemic, and these proposals will help to revitalize our business districts, ease New Yorkers’ commutes, promote equity and tackle our 800,000-unit housing shortage. These are the types of bold, ambitious ideas we need right now, and my administration looks forward to closely reviewing the panel’s recommendations in the coming weeks to determine how we continue to make New York an even better place to live.”
The New New York panel was launched in May 2022 and is being led by co-chairs and former New York City deputy mayors Richard Buery, now CEO of Robin Hood, and Daniel Doctoroff, former CEO of Sidewalk Labs. The broad and diverse panel worked for six months to generate recommendations for the city and state — at a time of historic alignment between the two — to partner with each other and across sectors to reimagine a “New” New York that propels the city and the region forward for its next chapter of equitable, inclusive growth.
