THE CR0WD NETWORK
CR0WD (Circularity, Reuse, Zero Waste Development) is a collaborative network of planners, architects, preservationists, policymakers, salvage and reuse professionals, real estate specialists, academics, and students from around New York State. We welcome all who are working to create healthier communities through more sustainable treatment of our built environment.
In the summer of 2020, CR0WD founding partners came together, concerned about continued demolition in central New York and its harm to our environment, economies, and sense of place. Initially focused in the Finger Lakes region, CR0WD has expanded its partners and initiatives to become a leading voice in New York State for the benefits of deconstruction and reuse of building materials.
As we expand our efforts across New York State, we welcome you to join us.
