Public Workshop for Peekskill Local Waterfront Revitalization Program

pwrwPeekskill’s Waterfront Advisory Committee is holding a public workshop on potential projects for the Peekskill waterfront. This is an opportunity to get your voice heard, learn about the process and help the Waterfront Advisory Committee build upon the many new developments that have occurred in the waterfront area in recent years.

This workshop follows a public workshop that was held in March identifying a vision for the waterfront and educating the public about key issues and opportunities that the LWRP needed to address.

The City of Peekskill is in the process of updating its Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP). The LWRP is a plan that is prepared by a Waterfront Advisory Committee made up of local residents, business owners and civic leaders, with the assistance of City staff and a team of planning consultants. Although the Committee prepares the LWRP with public input, the Common Council has the ultimate responsibility for adopting the plan.

Since the March workshop, the Committee has used public input, technical analysis and conversations with City staff and the City Council to come up with a list of potential projects, policies and land use recommendations that will benefit the Peekskill waterfront. The next step is to present these potential projects to the public for your input, comment and additional ideas.

When: Tuesday, June 16, 2015, 7 PM to 9 PM
Where:  Nutrition Room at the Neighborhood Center (4 Nelson Avenue, Peekskill).

Please share with your friends, neighbors, colleagues or anyone who may have an interest in the future of Peekskill’s waterfront.

For more information, please visit the website for the City of Peekskill LWRP.

March meeting summary

If you can’t attend on the 16th, the meeting materials will be posted to the City’s LWRP website along with a link to send comments.

The Riverkeeper Sweep 2015 and Peekskill — one of 100 sites along the Hudson

sweep-2015-graphic2-732x250

The Riverkeeper Sweep is the largest day of service for the Hudson River, and will take place on Saturday, May 9. To register, click on a site below or if you’d like to join a different site visit www.riverkeeper.org/sweep to choose from one of 100 cleanups and plantings from NYC to Albany.

This is a RAIN OR SHINE event!

Signup at any of these sites:
Peekskill: Riverfront Green Park
Peekskill: Annsville Preserve Park
Peekskill: Annsville Creek by Kayak
Travis-Cove-May2014-GChambers_1344-550

In 2014 this event engaged more than 1,900 volunteers, who removed an estimated 31 tons of trash and planted hundreds of trees in 82 shoreline locations on the Hudson and its tributaries. Volunteers removed 2,340 pounds of debris from Annsville Preserve, Riverfront green and Travis Cove as part of the Sweep in 2014.

Sweep to Your Brewery
New York City and Hudson Valley breweries will host meetups following the Sweep, where participants will be treated to one free beverage on the house (non-alcoholic options available). Following the cleanup, volunteers are encouraged to head to their local brewery for a beer.

The success during the 2014 Sweep was due to the leadership of over 120 Sweep Leaders and the dedication of nearly 2,000 volunteers and hundreds of community partners. Let’s continue to reclaim the Hudson River from the hands of polluters.

At Last, My Peekskill Landing Has Come Along

Peekskill waterfront debut Huge news via Michael J. Miner on the Concerned Citizens for a Better Peekskill Facebook page: “Sneak peak at Peekskill Landing at Riverfront Green. Great boardwalk, kayak launch, pavilion and more. Video will be posted this weekend. Ribbon Cutting Friday, September 12 at 11 am.” Video below. Let’s all meet there at midnight Friday and cut more ribbons, in the form of champagne muselets (I had to look that up—they’re the little wires around the cork) and six-pack rings. Celebrate Peekskill responsibly, folks!
