In this Extra Inning of the Ballpark, we are joined by Marisa Lago, the Director of the New York City Department of City Planning and Chair of the City Planning Commission. Alongside LSE Cities and LSE’s School of Public Policy, the LSE US Centre hosted Marisa Lago on the 5th of November 2019 for the event, Planning New York.
Chris Gilson of the LSE US Centre spoke with Marisa Lago ahead of the event about what it’s like to work across three New York mayoral administrations, the big planning issues facing the city right now, and how city planning can help address inequality. They also spoke about the big challenges that New York City will be facing in the next few decades and how it plans to cope with climate change, increased automation, and an aging population.
Marisa Lago is the Director of the New York City Department of City Planning and Chair of the City Planning Commission.
