For some reason, Mayor Bloomberg went out to California today to announce an environmental sustainability initiative he mentioned a while back to the New York League of Conservation Voters. (Wait–we see a pattern: environment, voters, California?) We’d normally yawn at the creation of another commission, but this one will oversee the long-term strategic plan for the city we’ve had our eyes on that could bring decks over Sunnyside Yards and light-rail and pedestrian reclamations and other things we’ve never heard about. (Wait–is that long-term strategic plan just getting started or almost done?)
