The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has proposed the construction of a protective seawall from Fort Wadsworth to Great Kills Park. Recognizing the effect this important project will have on our parkland, NYC Parks is developing the Shoreline Parks Plan to guide the redevelopment of our shoreline parks to work with this new flood protection. You can find out more about the Army Corps’ plans for seawall on their website.
Parks has launched a new webpage for Staten Island’s Shoreline Parks Plan. Explore the interactive map, and take our survey! Drop a marker anywhere on our map to tell us what you love about these beaches and shoreline parks, what you wish was here, and what you think needs improvement. Take our survey and tell us how you spend your time here.
Please share this with your fellow community members and contacts as we are looking to collect input all summer long. Stay tuned to our website for information on our first public meeting, to be held in September.
We look forward to hearing back from you!
