Visioning for City’s Waterfront Plan Kicks Off This Thursday
April 6th, 2010, 10:51 am
The New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) is updating its Comprehensive Waterfront Plan and is looking for public input in creating a framework that will guide land use decisions along the city’s shoreline. DCP has committed itself to extensive public involvement to identify the goals and issues to be addressed by the Plan, and this Thursday, April 8, at 6:00 – 8:30 p.m., is the first public meeting in this year-long visioning process of public consultation. The Plan has the potential to profoundly transform New York City’s waterfront, and MAS encourages waterfront enthusiasts and members of the public alike to take this opportunity to offer their input to help set the direction for the future of what is, perhaps, our city’s greatest natural resource. The meeting will be held at: Murray Bergtraum High School, 411 Pearl Street, Manhattan [MAP], and in the coming months, borough-specific meetings will be held to identify opportunities for each waterfront neighborhood.
