The Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Priority Act (A8011B/S5560B), which directs New York state agencies to make their infrastructure spending decisions in accordance with smart growth principles, was signed into law by Gov. Paterson on Monday.

The law was a priority for Vision Long Island, Empire State Future, TSTC, and other transportation and planning groups, and its passage was hailed by advocates. “The Public Infrastructure Priority Act’s signing into law is a huge step to stopping costly sprawl at its source,” Empire State Future executive director Peter Fleisher said in a statement. Eric Alexander of Vision LI said that “this legislation will help prioritize infrastructure investments for our downtowns while limiting NYS subsidized sprawl on open space.”
