Executive Vice President, RPA
@JulietteNYC

Juliette is executive vice president at Regional Plan Association, a civic urban planning organization focused on growth and sustainability in the New York tri-state area. Juliette led the production of the 2017 Fourth Regional Plan, a long-range, comprehensive plan to promote prosperity, equity, health and sustainability in the region. The plan was created over five years and involved hundreds of civic groups, community-grassroots organizations, business leaders and designers, giving the plan a broad base of support as we pivot to implementation.

As executive vice president, Juliette also oversees RPA’s operations, including strategic direction, external communications, development and finance. Juliette has steered a number of RPA’s large initiatives, including the creation of a network of transit-agency executives from around the world. She is also the author of two landmark reports that quantified how much transit service improves home values near train stations. 

Prior to joining RPA, Juliette worked at Project for Public Spaces, where she managed a range of outreach, education and training programs to help municipalities and state departments of transportation work together and make concordant land use and transportation decisions. Juliette received a bachelor's in political science from Princeton University and a master's in urban planning from Columbia University. She grew up in Paris, but now is a proud Brooklyn resident along with her husband and three children.
