What Does New Visions Say About Air Quality?

The New Visions Plan charts a course for environmental quality in the Capital District. The plan fosters protection of open space and environmentally sensitive areas, moderation of growth of vehicle miles traveled (or VMT) to support energy conservation and air quality, and identification of opportunities for larger- than-project specific mitigation of transportation impacts. By encouraging sustainable development patterns and site design, urban reinvestment and community-based land use planning, along with transit, bicycle and pedestrian investments and strong participation in the Clean Cities program, the Plan seeks to create a sustainable transportation system over the long run in the Capital District.
