Join the Waterfront Alliance in Partnership with the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) and co-host the Cornell College of Architecture, Art, and Planning for a forum on the future of New York City’s waterfront.

Next year the Department of City Planning (DCP) will release the next NYC Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, which will guide waterfront planning and policy in the city for the next 10 years. This is an important time to set the course of action for our waterfront for the next decade and beyond.

This forum will be an opportunity to learn and engage around waterfront issues and to provide input into the state of water quality and natural resources, as well as provide input on ecological and shoreline restoration, water quality improvement, and public access challenges and opportunities.

What should the future of NYC’s waterfront look like?

As part of a city-wide community engagement and research gathering effort, these forums are an important opportunity for New Yorkers to learn and engage around key waterfront issues and to actively inform the waterfront planning process.

Specifically, this forum will seek input on the state of water quality and natural resources. Ecological and shoreline restoration, water quality improvement, and enhanced public access have changed the face of NYC’s waterfronts. Improving water quality, diverse native habitats and green infrastructure, among other natural resources, requires investment, environmentally sound planning, policies, education, and stewardship. Come share your thoughts!

This forum will convene the general public and local stakeholders — environmental advocates, community groups and leaders, local organizations, and waterfront enthusiasts of all kinds!
