Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts
Starting in the Fall of 2011, Scenic Hudson began presenting a series of Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts workshops in partnership with
Participants discuss community vulnerability and resiliency
with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Hudson River Estuary Program and Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve. The first workshop—held at Scenic Hudson’s River Center in Beacon in November— was extremely well-attended and featured a range of presentations and panel discussions targeted to help municipal officials, developers, consultants and residents work toward redeveloping Hudson waterfronts in ways that will stimulate the economy, connect people to the river, protect the environment and help prepare for rising sea levels along the Hudson.
Events have since occurred in Kingston, Hudson and Peekskill, providing an opportunity to many Hudson riverfront communities to discuss the issues associated with sea level rise. The publication that spurred the conversation is available online at Scenic Hudson.
Presentations from the Peekskill event on November 15, 2012 are available here.
