East Side Coastal Resiliency Project: Public Scoping Meeting, December 3rd

Starting this month, the City is conducting an environmental review to analyze the potential environmental and social impacts of proposed design alternatives for the project.

The ESCR Project aims to enhance the public waterfront along the East River between Montgomery Street and East 23rd Street. This project is part of the citywide effort to make our city safer and better able to withstand the impacts of coastal flooding and sea-level rise.

The Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, in partnership with City agencies, is hosting a public meeting for community members to share their input on the Draft Scope of Work for the ESCR Project’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The meeting will take place on:
Thursday, December 3rd, Presentation at 7:00 P.M.
Bard High School Early College, 525 East Houston Street

The Draft Scope of Work can be accessed at the following websites:
