Cooper admits push might be too late

Cooper admits push might be too late.

“I think we’re seeing a significant number of people start to recognize that this is something that they can do,” she says. “A lot of them don’t even know they can do it. Even if you’re one of the few, maybe 10 percent, of people, there’s actually a lot of them that have an opportunity to take a significant role in building the public sphere.”

“If I had my way,” says Mayor Bill de Blasio, “I would take the steps I did immediately, which are: We’re going to have우리카지노 public participation workshops; we’re going to have community meetings to hear from people and hear from localities about why the city needs more public space; we’re going to launch a public service campaign to educate New Yorkers about their municipal rights; and we’re going to develop a strategy for working with groups of neighbors, community groups and city agencies to implement things like the inclusionary zoning ordinance in the next three years.”

And that’s why New York is finally catching up to other cities around the world as a model for urban development. It’s not just that cities have always thrived on the kind of diversity that seems to work best in large cities, Cooper contends. She’s also right—it’s because of the way that cities are designe더킹카지노d and governed, she says—by the concept of “cooperative governance,” in which leaders and public officials coordinate and collaborate with neighbors, employees, employees and employees, employees and citizens. Cooper says the city is doing much, much better than most to implem바카라ent that, which could help convince more New Yorkers that a new mayor or council or mayoralty are the best way to address this very serious problem.

“I think it’s very important for cities to keep up with the times,” she says. “We’re already living a very dynamic, complex economy and urban centers, and they have to stay u
