Administrative History

Executive Order No. 102, promulgated on January 21, 2000 by Governor George E. Pataki, established the Quality Communities Interagency Task Force. The Task Force consisted of state agency leaders and it was directed to develop a set of principles aimed at creating places people would want to call "home." In 2001, the Task Force released its report, entitled "State and Local Governments Partnering for a Better New York." The report provided a list of forty-one recommendations that would allow for enhanced partnerships between state and local governments. The report also laid out guidelines for effective planning, revitalizing community centers, technological advancement, protecting farmlands, conserving open spaces, sustainable economic development, and improved transportation. After the release of the report, Governor Pataki formed an Interagency Working Group comprised of over two dozen state agencies. The Working Group focused on adopting the guidelines and seeking support for Quality Communities projects among agency personnel.
