The Germantown Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) Committee hosted their first of 3 public information sessions on Saturday, December 4. They presented research from their Inventory & Analysis, described the reasoning behind their proposed LWRP Boundary, and more!

They’re hoping to get more input from the community, and are also hosting a virtual version of the meeting at this website:

There are interactive youtube videos and concept boards set up for commenting and discussion. This will be up until 12/20/21. Please take a look and add your input!

What is the LWRP?

New York State’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) is a locally prepared, land and water use plan and implementation strategy for a community’s natural, public, working, or developed waterfront. In partnership with the Department of State, a municipality develops community consensus regarding the future of its waterfront and implements the plan to make the most of its waterfront. In order for a LWRP to be official, it must be adopted by resolution by the individual municipalities. Communities with an approved LWRP are eligible to apply for implementation funds (available only to communities with a LWRP). Additionally, approved LWRPs are also regulatorily enforceable documents. For example, projects proposed by federal agencies within Germantown’s LWRP boundary would be required to demonstrate compliance with our approved LWRP.
