Project Overview

cover_LI2035_Visioning_Initiative_ReportThe Long Island 2035 Regional Visioning Initiative was funded by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) to help achieve a regional public consensus for where the next generation of Long Islanders could live and work, the transportation systems needed to support these settlements, and the institutional actions required to ensure a prosperous, equitable and environmentally sustainable Long Island. The project's findings are being used to help the Long Island Regional Planning Council produce a Long Island 2035 Comprehensive Regional Sustainability Plan.

The initiative's Final Report, which can be downloaded below, was released in December 2009. The Highlights of the report include results from a March 2009 visioning workshop and both baseline and alternative scenarios for 2035.
