VISION PLAN FOR RESILIENCY

Recent Event

Community Resiliency Workshop
April 27, 2024
At this workshop, participants had an opportunity to see and discuss the Draft Vision Plan for Resiliency, which is based on input gathered at two prior events organized by LICC-HPCC to inspire community involvement and engagement.

About Hunters Point Vision Plan for Resilency

In September 2023, the Long Island City Coalition/Hunters Point Community Coalition (LICC/HPCC) started the community-based process of creating a Vision Plan for Resilency for the East River waterfront in Northern Hunters Point to transform the community's vision for a more resilient waterfront into a viable plan.

The Vision Plan for Resiliency is being created out of a community-based, inclusive planning process and is based on LICC/HPCC's guiding principles to be sustainable, resilient, and equitable.

LICC/HPCC recently received a grant from Senator Michael N. Gianaris (New York State Senate Deputy Leader) and a pledge of support from Senator Kristen Gonzalez to develop far-sighted, proactive resiliency strategies in collaboration with the public, members of the community, other local community groups and a team of award-winning professionals, experienced in the planning and design of sustainable urban waterfronts.
