Green New Deal Plan

Regional Reconstruction Program

National economies are composed of smaller, regional economies. For instance, the greater New York City region operates as a fairly well-integrated economy, as do the regions around Chicago or Los Angeles. The Green New Deal plan proposes that city regions be planned for and created that would include farm regions, manufacturing regions, transportation and internet networks. The central element, however, would be to create density in the city or cities that are the center of a particular city region, and in the towns and suburbs that are associated with a city region. This density would make the farm, manufacturing, and transportation systems efficient.

This plan does not currently include a region-wide energy plan, although each city region should plan for distributed solar, geothermal, and building efficiency programs.

The region is the natural home for plans concerning the upgrading and maintenance of water, transportation and educational infrastructure as well.
