East Side Coastal Resiliency Project Public Hearing
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM.

As a requirement of its federal funding, the City of New York must amend its Action Plan for ESCR in order to further describe how the City will use its federal funds to support Hurricane Sandy recovery and make the City more resilient to the effects of climate change. A public hearing regarding the amendment of the ESCR Action Plan will be held on Tuesday, April 4th, at 6:30 PM at the Manny Cantor Center at 197 East Broadway. For more information, consult the CB6 website or the ESCR project’s website.
