Mayor Bloomberg named David Bragdon as Director of the Mayor's Office of Long-Term Planning & Sustainability

The Long-Term Planning & Sustainability Office works with City agencies and the Mayor's Advisory Board for Sustainability to oversee a strategic plan for the City's future. The office is responsible for the creation and execution of PlaNYC, the City's long-term vision for a greener, greater New York.

Bragdon was most recently president of Portland's Metro City Council, an elected body that manages city planning, protection of natural areas, handling of solid waste and recycling, and management of regional facilities. During his tenure, the Portland region saw the success of a number of considerable environmental and conservationist efforts; for example, a $227 million voter-approved bond measure that allowed for the protection of natural areas and stream corridors. Bragdon is also credited with facilitating regional collaboration between local governments and non-governmental agencies, businesses and citizens in order to implement the region's plans for a sustainable future.
