Mayor Eric Adams has revealed plans to accelerate New York City’s ongoing recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Entitled “Rebuild, Renew, Reinvent: A Blueprint for New York City’s Economic Recovery,” the plan outlines the mayor’s vision not just for the city’s recovery, but for the future of the city’s economy, all of which is going to be built on equity and inclusivity. The blueprint aims to accelerate the return to pre-pandemic employment levels while also laying the foundation for the city’s economic future by addressing historic injustices and reimagining outdated ways of doing business.
“New York City’s recovery cannot and will not be about going back to the way things were — we are going to rebuild, renew, and reinvent our city and our economy for today, tomorrow, and generations to come,” said Mayor Adams. “This is more than a to-do list: It is a complete reset with more than 70 concrete actions we will take to tear down the barriers to progress and build up a strong, resilient city with opportunity for everyone. I want all New Yorkers to know that your city is looking out for you and planning for your future, so New York can be a city we are all proud to call home.”
