Strategies for Better Community Involvement: Demystifying the Federal, State, and City Review Process for Environmental Projects
This event is an interactive roundtable designed to discuss and educate members of the public on the federal, state, and city environmental review processes. Our intent is to better equip and enable members of the public impacted by environmental projects to better engage with government agencies conducting environmental reviews for these projects, which will hopefully lead to better, more informed government decision-making and a more knowledgeable public.
This discussion will focus on the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Plan. The LMCR Plan, released in March 2019, is an umbrella project composed of several sub-projects which collectively aim to reduce flood risks from coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan. The content of the discussion, however, is relevant to all projects subject to the environmental review process.
This event is part of the State, City and Local Action program of Climate Week NYC.
