Capital Planning Explorer: showcase of new public tool and dataset from NYC City Planning

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Capital Planning Explorer (CPE) is a tool for the public and planners to access some maps and data that they need to understand NYC neighborhoods, better plan for investments, and collaborate with one another. CPE makes three databases available on a single platform, allowing users to explore (1) capital projects in the Ten-Year Capital Plan, (2) City facilities, and (3) housing permits on one map.

The session will provide an overview of the tool, followed by a deep dive on the Capital Projects Database. We’ll walk through how we create the database starting with the Capital Commitment Plan from OMB, to how we integrate spatial data from the major capital agencies. We’ll also discuss use cases for both the dataset and the map. These resources can be used as a starting point to answer questions such as:
  • What projects are happening in a neighborhood or council district? 
  • What other agencies’ projects might impact another project? 
  • What capital investments are being made in growing neighborhoods? 
  • Are there geographically specific lump sums that can be tapped into? 
  • What are the most expensive projects in the City’s Capital Commitment Plan?

The session will close with a conversation about how the audience can use CPE and their suggestions for future improvements.
