There are so many important projects in the pipeline and have so much to discuss in terms of what New York can expect with improvements upon our housing, building, construction, transportation and more. City & State’s 2023 Rebuilding New York Summit featured discussions dissecting the biggest infrastructure issues, including funding for repairs, use of MWBEs, policy recommendations, and where the city and state has seen its biggest successes and shortcomings.

Modernizing the Rebuilding and Construction Industry
The last few years has given New York time to reflect on previous practices in all industries including effectively addressing New York’s building industry. Our industry experts will provide information related to what they are focused on including equity in building, safety and security measures, management of assets for capital and public-private projects currently slated. This discussion will also include the integration of NYC's Local Law 97, the state's recent ban on gas hookups in new construction, and other climate programs needed to modernize New York's building and construction industry in order to meet our goals for affordable housing and rebuilding New York.
Sponsor Remarks by Jon Baldwin, Executive Vice President, Government Solutions, Verra Mobility
Rethinking New York’s Transportation Systems
New York is taking steps to meet its growing transportation infrastructure needs. The city is revamping its bus and subway network, increasing ferry routes, expanding bike sharing options to the outer boroughs and offering more accessibility options. Also the JFK Redevelopment project and airport initiatives are moving along. Albany has also announced an historic $32.8 billion, five-year capital plan for programs that refocus investments on state and local roads and bridges in smaller municipalities and help reconnect neighborhoods and facilitate regional economic growth, while creating thousands of new jobs. Which of these top transportation projects are being prioritized and where are the opportunities for contractors? What are the new technologies that are impacting how we travel safely and timely, and ways we access information while doing so?
Sponsor Remarks by Helena Williams, CEO, JFK Millennium Partners
Rebuilding New York from the Ground Up
How have various projects impacted NY’s economic recovery, and what are tips to make projects more efficient, equitable, innovative, and sustainable?What are the newest plans, ideas and programs for both affordable housing and sheltering people who are experiencing homelessness? How are we rolling out faster and more spread-out internet usage and what current plans are in the works for making our systems more accessible for all New Yorkers? In terms of who is doing the rebuilding, where are the biggest needs for workers, and plans to accelerate job creation? How are companies working with their public officials and labor unions to make communities aware of these new job opportunities and what role does MWBEs play in this?
The Public-Private Partnerships Bringing Projects to Life in New York
The new Infrastructure bill has funds for high-speed internet, climate resiliency projects, energy grid improvements, transportation projects and environmental programs. We discuss these public-private partnerships involved with the new bill, others in progress, new investment opportunities, cutting through red tape and tips on inclusion.
