How do public buildings like schools, firehouses, and libraries end up in your community, and who had a say in how they got there?

 

Mapping Community demystifies the complex process of capital planning in New York City by explaining the rules that govern the capital process for our city, the various city agencies that implement projects, and the ways everyday New Yorkers have a say in what types of investment they would like to see in their neighborhoods.

 

The exhibition will also look at how public projects are accomplished at the local community level by illustrating five types of public infrastructure—housing, transit, parks, schools, and libraries—in five community boards.
