The Third Annual Patty Noonan Memorial Policy Forum: Water: International, Statewide, and Local Policies and Concerns
For everyone, the capture, use, and processing of water and waste water is a critical concern. In New York, our watershed areas are threatened by development and now, gas exploration.

About the Annual Patty Noonan Memorial Policy Forum:
Each year, GHNYC honors the memory of our friend Patty Noonan, who in her brief career in NYC was one of the principle agents of change in sustainable affordable housing, and many other sustainable causes. She inspired and mentored many in our field; as the point person for sustainable causes at the NYC Partnership, she changed the way many felt about our field. After 9/11, she took the helm of the Partnership's downtown revitalization efforts; her continued exposure to the WTC site caused her to leave us much too early. In tribute, GHNYC holds a Patty Noonan Memorial Policy Forum, to honor her memory, bring an important policy issue to light, and inspire people to follow in her path.
