The Fourth Regional Plan

Making the Region Work for All of Us

The Fourth Regional Plan provided specific recommendations to promote inclusive growth that would bring shared prosperity, equity, improved health, and sustainability for the region.

The region may look great from Fifth Avenue, but in many neighborhoods across the five boroughs, and in places like Paterson, Bridgeport, and Hempstead, it doesn’t feel that way. Commutes are longer than ever, housing is more expensive, and climate change is exposing real long-term vulnerabilities.”
