Our "draft" LWRP was actually adopted by the Common Council in 2011, but strangely it was never submitted to the Department of State for approval. Earlier this year, when this oversight was discovered, the Department of State indicated they did not want to review a document that was more than five years old, hence the revision now being undertaken.
The process promises to involve a lot of public input. To prepare for that, readers are encouraged to read not only the LWRP as it was adopted in November 2011 but also the numerous comments about it that were made prior to its adoption by the Common Council. If you need to be inspired to care about the LWRP and the Hudson waterfront, visit the Facebook page recently created by Peter Jung, Our Waterfront. This is the cover photo from that page.
