‘Green Fast Track’ lets NYC developers streamline some eco-friendly housing construction: Adams

Mayor Eric Adams on Monday unveiled the “Green Fast Track,” a plan aimed at cutting red tape on production of small- and medium-sized housing projects in the five boroughs — saying the idea will help accelerate a boom in new housing hitting the market.  

The Green Fast Track focuses on streamlining the environmental review process for certain housing projects with plans that have no negative impacts on the carbon footprint, but have historically still needed to go through the expensive and time-consuming process before they could break ground.
