Our city has more than 500 miles of shoreline that provide endless opportunities for commercial, maritime, and residential building projects, public access, and, of course, natural preservation. To accomplish these tasks, the NYC Department of City Planning (DCP) is embarking on Vision 2020: A New Comprehensive Waterfront Plan to “set forth long-range goals for a 21st-century waterfront and establish a sustainable blueprint for the future of New York Harbor, its tributaries, creeks, and bays,” according to Chair Amanda Burden, FAICP, Hon. AIANY.
The DCP wants your input in this year-long planning process. A kick-off public meeting is scheduled for 04.08.10, 6:00PM at Murry Bergtraum High School located at 411 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan. You may also visit the DCP website to learn more, view the timeline, and share your ideas.
