You Can Speak Out on the City’s East River Flood Protection Plan Tomorrow Night
Coming up tomorrow night, you will have a chance to look over preliminary plans for the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project. That’s the city’s ambitious initiative to create a flood barrier and enhanced recreational area along the East River.
A public meeting will take place at Grand Street Settlement, 80 Pitt St., starting at 6 p.m. The project was funded by the federal government, which awarded $335 million to build a levee and flood wall system from East 23rd Street to Montgomery Street. The city recently applied for another $$500 million in funding to extend the project below Montgomery Street, all the way to the Battery.
This will be the last opportunity to weigh in on the plans before a concept design is unveiled at the end of the year. If you’d like to check out coverage from the last round of meetings, click here.
