Rockland P.L.U.S. engages students in planning in their immediate community. Our County is composed of 5 towns and 19 villages, each with a unique identity and set of factors to consider for future development projects. In these communities there are pockets of commercial and residential development that are thriving, and others that are hoping for new energy and revitalization. For Rockland P.L.U.S. 2017, students will select a local spot in their Rockland community to revitalize. Students should consider how creative planning can reduce our energy use in transit, and increase our home efficiency in both water and energy.

Class projects; really S.E.E. your community. Students consider three complementary processes that make a community successful and sustainable: a balance of social, economic and environmental factors or what we refer to as S.E.E.ing their community. ~350 students from nine community high schools (Albertus Magnus, Clarkstown North, Nanuet, North Rockland, Nyack, Pearl River, P-Tech, Suffern and Spring Valley) participate in a series of 3 classroom visits each as they develop projects focused on their own region of Rockland.Approximately 150 students will participate in the final symposium, representing their fellow classmates.

Symposium Event. On Thursday March 23, 2017 we will host our Symposium Event at the HNA Conference Center in Palisades, NY. The students will present their own community project to mentors from the community. Goals & Objectives for the visits are here. Following this they will be transfer their skills to a new project, and work alongside students from other schools. Each group will consider a section of IRG, the old Pfizer property.
