Fresh Kills: From Landfill to Landscape

freshkills parkThe City of New York, led by the Department of City Planning, is undertaking a master plan for the Fresh Kills site. Following a design competition co-sponsored with the Municipal Art Society, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced the selection of a consultant team led by Field Operations, a landscape architecture firm, to draft the plan for the 2,200-acre site. The goal is to guide Fresh Kills’ transformation into a magnificent new park that will be a great asset for the citizens of Staten Island, the City of New York, and the metropolitan region. To ensure that the master plan reflects the needs and desires of New Yorkers, we need your input! Please visit the Fresh Kills website, learn more about the planning, and leave your comments.
