The city will host a virtual community meeting for Maritime Park on Tuesday, July 11th, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom webinar and those interested in participating can click here.

“The project team will present three concept designs for the future waterfront park that reflect public feedback collected from an online survey and April community meeting,” the city wrote in a Nixle alert this afternoon.

“The project team will gather public input during the meeting on the concept designs via breakout rooms where meeting participants can share their preferences and learn more about the design approaches.”

After years of negotiations with New York Waterway, the city council voted in February for a three-year lease with the company to use Union Dry Dock, which comes out to $4,573 in rent a month, as well as $1,174,146.90 contract to create a maritime park design.

Additionally, the city will host a virtual community meeting on Thursday, July 13th, at 6 p.m. to gather feedback from the community for the Church Square Park Vision Plan.

“The plan will guide the city as it seeks to upgrade the park while keeping its historic character,” the Nixle alert states.
