In what could be the first in the nation, NYC Mayor Bill DiBlasio has has proposed new guidelines for all new construction and renovation in the 5 boroughs.
“New York is meeting the challenge of climate change head-on, and in the process we are building a better city,” says Mayor de Blasio. “These guidelines are another national first, and will make the city’s buildings and infrastructure more resilient in the face of rising seas, extreme heat and storms. Our forward-looking approach will help us prepare for the effects of climate change, so the next generation can continue to call New York home.”
While no one knows just yet how this development will be implemented this will surely be a game changer for all concerned
